Why see Girl From The North Country?

Ready to Capture North America's Heart

After a Tony-nominated run on Broadway and five-time Olivier award-nominated run in London, this critically acclaimed Public Theater production is headed out on tour! Conor McPherson's (book and director) Girl From The North Country features the music of Bob Dylan, and tells the story of one small town in Minnesota who are left reeling from the Great Depression.

In this spellbinding and exquisite musical we dive beneath Dylan's iconic work and discover the extraordinary characters that inspired him. Featuring songs like "Hurricane", "Tight Connection To My Heart" and the titular "Girl From The North Country" this ethereal and folksy tuner will transport you to Depression-era Duluth, where we meet a boarding house owner on the edge of ruin and the citizens of the town who flock to it. Some are there for the long haul, some are there fleetingly, but within each lies equal measures of tragedy, hope, and humanity.

With heart-wrenching stories fused with goose-bump-inducing arrangements, Girl From The North Country is sure to capture your heart.

From London To America!

Debuting at London's prestigious Old Vic Theatre in the summer of 2017, Girl From The North Country transferred to the Noel Coward Theatre in London's West End in early 2018. Garnering five Olivier Award nominations, including Best New Musical and Outstanding Achievement in Music, Girl From The North Country won two for its two leading ladies, Sheila Atim and Shirley Henderson. Breaking hearts and selling out wherever it lands Girl From The North Country is the one theatrical event not to be missed.

Open Your Mind To “Girl From the North Country”

“Girl From the North Country” is certainly melancholy & sad, but much more depressing are the reactions that I’m reading here. It’s as if this musical has to conform to more standard musicals because of a refusal to view it on any other terms or to recognize what it tries to accomplish. This is a mood piece, a musical tone poem, and its kaleidoscope of lonely, alienated characters face a time of misery. It has some of the greatness of “Our Town,” and its multitude of overlapping characters trying to survive in their own way reminded me of a Robert Altman movie. More important than the plight of each character is the summation of all of them — the mood that is cast through staging and these reworked, plaintive, stripped down Bob Dylan songs. This show aches…that doesn’t mean it’s a one-star show. Instead of harping on your disappointment with the “story,” perhaps you should ask a more important question borrowed from one of the great musical poets of our time: “How Does It Feel?” ...

Great Play

This is simply a great play. The music, the acting and the different scenes are well done. It is easy to follow, there is nothing confusing and this play is not hard to follow. The actors are great, and professionals. Do not deter yourself from seeing this great piece of art. Those who gave it 1 star are jealous period. ... Read more

SOPHISTICATED, EXCELLENT THEATRE

Ignore the one star reviews. This touring show is very, very well done. People who expect all musicals to be “Hello Dolly” might be disappointed by “Girl From The North Country” (and I say that as a fan of “Hello Dolly”!). But this is a very grownup play with music. It has more in common with Greek tragedy than with most feel-good musicals. The Dylan songs aren’t *meant* to advance the plot—they keep the mood going and let you ponder all the feelings the characters are too emotionally inarticulate to express. The cast is dynamite. I was weeping by the end. Give it a chance. It’s thorny and different and wonderful. ... Read more
