Prior to leading this new fantasy production, Jacobs portrayed Princess Jasmine in Aladdin at the New Amsterdam Theatre, opposite Telly Leung as Aladdin. The prince and princess crossed paths once again when Leung went to see the new musical and snapped a photo with her and Smith.

Between The Lines follows high schooler Delilah, an outsider in a new school, who seeks comfort in her favorite book where she feels heard and understood. But, the lines between reality and fantasy begin to blur, and she has to confront whether she has the power to rewrite her own story.
In addition to Jacobs and Smith, the production features Vicki Lewis as Ms. Winx/Jessamyn Jacobs/Mrs. Brown/Kyrie, Hillary Fisher as Allie/Princess Seraphima, Will Burton as Frump/Ryan, Jerusha Cavazos as Janice/Marina, John Rapson as Dr. Ducharme/Rapskulio, Wren Rivera as Jules/Ondine, Sean Stack as Martin/Troll/Dad/Delivery Person, and Julia Murney as Grace/Queen Maureen. Heather Ayers, Dan Hoy, Martin Landry, and Aubrey Matalon serve as understudies.
The work, based on the novel by Jodi Picoult and Samantha van Leer, features a book by Timothy Allen McDonald (James and the Giant Peach), and a score by Elyssa Samsel and Kate Anderson (Central Park). Jeff Calhoun (Newsies) directs, with orchestrations and arrangements by Gregory Rassen (Bandstand).
