Between The Lines at Tony Kiser Theater, NYC – 8/21/22

When I heard Between The Lines on off-Broadway was closing 3 weeks early on September 11 instead of their planned October 2nd, I knew I had to go see this show again ASAP! This show has my entire heart and I loved it just as much the second time around!

You can see my review from the first time I saw Between The Lines back in July here.

I’m going to try and be as honest and open in my reviews as I can. Please note these are my personal opinions and I’m always open to discussions!

Show Name: Between The Lines
Show Type: Musical
Location: Tony Kiser Theater at Second Stage Theater, NYC
Date Seen: Sunday, August 21, 2022

📖✨ This is a story about a girl who loses herself in a children’s fairytale and the prince in the story comes to live – and she eventually falls into the story herself! It’s a wonderfully wholesome story about being a teenager and growing up, and how the right book can find you at the right time when you need it most.

As a bookish person, I feel this story very strongly!!!

Arielle Jacobs is a wonderfully socially awkward Delilah, our main character. Her voice is so strong! Jake David Smith is a charming prince Oliver and I loved him just as much the second time around, he’s so funny!

The previous time I saw Between The Lines, we actually had an understudy for the “bully” Allie/Princess Seraphima, so this time I saw the regular actress, Hillary Fisher! She played the role differently than Aubrey Matalon did so that was interesting to see a the change between actresses.

Wren Rivera plays the non-binary character Jules and I love them! They also play the mermaid Ondine and I love both songs that Wren sings – they have such a powerful voice and really catchy songs. I also appreciate that this show has a non-binary character and Jules explains what that means to Delilah (in a fun way, of course – saying how some books are fiction, and some are non-fiction, but Jules is “the whole library”).

While this show is closing early, it’s still getting a cast recording and I can’t wait to be able to listen to this album! I love this show and it’s message.

Arielle and Jake both came out to sign at the stage door which was so nice! Haven’t done a proper stage door in ages, and I decided to get a photo with Jake/Prince Oliver too. We saw a few of the other actors come out only waved and didn’t have a sharpie ready, so they weren’t planning to sign.

I highly recommend getting over to the Tony Kiser Theatre at Second Stage Theatre to see this show before it closes on September 11th! Retail tickets are $100, but TodayTix has $49 tickets or $30 day of rush tickets, so it can be affordable!

I’m hoping to see this show at least once more, and maybe for the final performance on September 11th!
