Girl From The North Country Now In Previews

Girl From the North CountryNow unless you've been living under a rock for the past fifty years, I'm guessing you've heard of Bob Dylan. In fact, I dare say that most of you can probably recite a few of his songs from memory. My personal favorite is "The Hurricane".

Although I do love "Tambourine Man"as well as "The Times They Are A Changin".But enough about what I like. Girl From The North Country, which first premiered at the Old Vic Theatre in London in 2017, began previews last night at the Belasco Theatre, with opening night scheduled for March 5.

Featuring a book and direction by Tony and Olivier Award nominee Conor McPherson, Girl From The North Country takes place in Duluth, Minnesota during the height of the Great Depression, and tells the tale of the Laine family, owners of the local guesthouse, who's future is being threatened with foreclosure by the bank.

The show, which also played a critically acclaimed Off-Broadway run at the Public Theatre in 2018, will star Tony Award nominees Marc Kudisch, David Pittu, and Mare Winningham, along side Todd Almond, Jeannette BayardelleMatthew Frederick HarrisCaitlin HoulahanRobert JoyLuba MasonBen MayneTom Nelis, Colton RyanJohn SchiappaKimber Elayne SprawlRachel Sternand Chelsea Lee Williams

Believe it or not, but this is not the first Bob Dylan musical to grace the Broadway stage. In 2006, Tony Award winner Twyla Tharp premiered a new musical called The Times They Are a-Changin. Unfortunately reviews were not good, and the show closed after nine weeks. Somehow I think this show will fare a lot better. Fingers crossed.
