BETWEEN THE LINES made its world premiere at Kansas City Rep in Fall 2017, where the musical broke box office records and the Kansas City Star called the show, “a whimsical, wonderful production,” and Broadway World raved, “It is a throwback to the prototypical well-conceived, masterfully executed, tuneful, funny, appropriately danced, and professionally acted example of what you hope a Broadway style musical might aspire to be at its best.” In January 2018,
a sold-out concert version of BETWEEN THE LINES was presented at the 92Y in Manhattan.
