Rialto Chatter: Is GIRL FROM THE NORTH COUNTRY Headed For Broadway?
According to the New York Post, the new musical Girl From the North Country, is eyeing a limited Broadway run this winter.
The Post reports that the show would play a six month engagement at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre, following the closing of another music icon musical, Summer: The Donna Summer Musical. Following Girl would be another rock bio-musical, Tina: The Tina Turner Musical.
Girl from the North Country weaves the music of our greatest poet-singer-songwriter into a piercing drama about home, heart, and the searching determination of the American soul.
Dylan's inimitable songbook is authentically transformed by McPherson into an achingly beautiful story of a down-on-its-luck community on the brink of change in Duluth, Minnesota, in 1934.
