Girl From The North Country

About the show

Please note that performances of Girl from the North Country have been cancelled through 3 January 2021, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Performances will resume as early as is practical in 2021.

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 opens 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 sure to be a singular and rousing experience. It begins previews on February 7 2020, with opening night set for March 5.

Extremely disappointing. A couple good songs, but that's pretty much all I got out of this. The story was boring and depressing.
