MEMBER: THE BROADWAY COLLECTION
After critically-acclaimed, smash-hit runs at the Public Theater and the West End, Girl From The North Country
brings its rousing spirit to Broadway.
1934. A time-weathered guesthouse in the heartland of America. Only a song can shake off the dust for one group of wayward souls—and old dreams may hold the promise of new beginnings. As they pass in and out of each other’s lives, their stories awaken with passion, fury and extraordinary beauty.
Reimagining the music of Bob Dylan as roof-raising ensemble pieces and soul-stirring solos, celebrated playwright Conor McPherson (The Weir
, The Seafarer
) writes and directs this heartbreaking and universal story about family and love. Girl From The North Country
is a breathtaking new show that Ben Brantley of The New York Times
calls “a ravishing production. You may find yourself thinking that this is as close as mortals come to heaven on Earth.”
