“The moody music and lyrics from the Bob Dylan playbook both define and heighten Conor McPherson’s haunting vision of the Depression… Overall, the morose music captures the bleakness of the period and the down-and-out hopelessness of those Americans who barely lived through it.” - Variety
Named after Dylan’s iconic folk track, Girl from the North Country made its debut in 2017, presenting at The Old Vic before committing to London's West End. The week-long stint was a big success, clinching three wins at the Laurence Olivier Awards.
The musical then reached an American audience in 2018 at New York's Public Theatre. Here, it won an acclaimed Outer Critics Circle Award for Outstanding New Off-Broadway Musical. The next year, the show finally opened on Broadway at the Belasco Theatre. Despite the abrupt cancellation due to the coronavirus pandemic, it received seven Tony Award nominations, earning a Best Orchestrations win.
This spring 2024, the jukebox musical will arrive at the Hollywood Pantages Theatre for its latest string of shows. The indoor venue promises audiences a truly memorable performance thanks to its spacious seats, stunning backdrop, and top-of-the-line theatrical facilities.
