Bob Dylan Musical Girl From The North Country To Open on Broadway In 2020

Girl from the North Country (musical).jpgIn the Fall of 2006, I saw a new musical based on the music of Bob Dylan called "The Times They Are a-Changin'. Now to be honest, I was really looking forward to it as the show's director Tony Award winner Twyla Tharp, was also the director and creator of Movin Out.

I loved that show. Of course it also helped that the show featured the music of my favorite songwriter Grammy and Tony Award winner Billy Joel. Now while I think Bob Dylan is one of the greatest songwriter's of all time, the story was not the greatest.

Plus being a writer myself, if the book is weak, it can really effect the show. No matter how great the music. Having said that, I am looking forward to seeing the latest Bob Dylan musical. Featuring direction and a book by Tony Award nominee and Olivier Award winner Conor McPherson (The Weir, The Seafarer), and over twenty classic Bob Dylan songs including "Like A Rolling Stone", "Make You Feel My Love", "Hurricane", "Forever Young", "Jokerman", Girl From The North Country is scheduled to begin previews at the Belasco Theatre on February 7, 2020, with opening night set for March 5.

Set in Duluth, Minnesota, during the height of the Great Depression, Girl From The North Country, tells the tale of the Laine family, owners of the local guesthouse, who's future is being threatened with foreclosure by the bank. An on sale date for tickets has yet to be announced. Be sure to check this website for future updates. Get your tickets to see Girl From The North Country on Broadway at the Belasco Theatre. Until next time theatre fans.
