    Girl From The North Country tickets

    After a critically acclaimed run at The Public Theater and an upcoming West End revival, Conor McPherson’s Girl from the North Country is set to take the stage on Broadway. Inspired by the unmistakeable tones of Bob Dylan, this original musical set in the heartlands of America runs at the Belasco Theatre.

    Duluth, Minnesota in 1934. During the height of the Depression a family argues, harbors secrets, and worries about the cost of keeping their guest-house open. Each night, strangers stop off to rest their heads. Connecting through the universal language of music, this mis-matched group of dreamers find their existence disrupted – and inspired - by a boxer and preacher arriving on the same evening.

    Taking inspiration from Bob Dylan’s affecting and poetic back catalogue, Girl from the North Country is written and directed by Conor McPherson (The Weir). It features songs including “Like a Rolling Stone” and “Forever Young”, in a moving combination of beloved songwriting and expert storytelling.

    Casting for the show's run on Broadway includes Todd Almond (Public Works’ The Tempest) as Elias Burke, Jeannette Bayardelle (The Color Purple) as Mrs. Neilsen, Caitlin Houlahan (Waitress) as Kate Draper and Matt McGrath (Cabaret) as Reverend Marlowe.

    Described by one critic as being “as close as mortals come to heaven on earth” (The New York Times), Girl from the North Country at the Belasco Theatre is a singular and rousing experience.

    Great show with an amazing cast. Not your run of the mill musical with just one straight story it interweaves the stories of many different characters.

    I went into this show actually with pretty high expectations. I was floored by the cast recording from the Original West End Cast, and when it was announced to transfer to New York at The Public I was desperate for tickets to no avail. I heard nothing but good things, but alas, once the Broadway transfer was announced I suddenly heard very split opinions— people I knew either adored it or absolutely hated it. One description I think fits it properly was that it was a mood piece. It’s very much a somber, somewhat depressing state which expectedly could be said for a town in the middle of Minnesota in 1934. However, it got to a point where I was trying to understand the point of the show at all. To me and countless others, Bob Dylan is one of the greatest songwriters of all time. I felt like the songs were not utilized to their fullest ability because he is such a strong storyteller in his songs and yet I didn’t feel like these songs were used to push the story forward. To me, the script is supposed to set the mood, not necessarily the music. The music is there to help exacerbate the mood, not lay the foundation. I don’t by any means think the show is awful, but just not what I thought it would be, sort of for the worst. It’s worth checking out especially since it was well-received by many, but I would proceed with caution. It’s certainly not a lively/chipper night at the theatre.

    I left there thinking that I don't know as many Bob Dylan songs as I thought I did. The show is pretty dark--it takes place during the Depression and the characters are going through hard times. I liked hearing the new arrangements of the songs, and the actors have great voices.

    The arrangements and performances of the songs were beautiful. However, the play itself needs work. The actors seem to break into song without reason, there isn’t always logic and the music is clustered. The book of the show needs work, too many story lines.
