Girl from the North Country - 2022 - Broadway History , Info & More

Belasco Theatre (Broadway)
111 West 44th St. New York, NY

In 1934, during the height of the Great Depression, everyone was searching for something. In a time-weathered guesthouse Minnesota, an unlikely group of strangers comes together with little other than hope and a need to survive in common.

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 come 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, playwright and director Conor McPherson weaves this story of faith, family, heartbreak, and love.

FEATURED REVIEWS FOR Girl from the North Country

‘Girl From the North Country’ review: Bob Dylan on Broadway is a dud
5 / 10

A series of unfortunate events has come to Broadway. No, not the Lemony Snicket novels, but 'Girl From the North Country,' a mashup of Bob Dylan songs and abject misery. The show, which opened Thursday night, is little more than a stack of vaguely depressed persons who take breaks from sad scenes to sing anguished and questionably relevant songs.

‘Girl From the North Country’ Review: Back Home Again on Desolation Row
9 / 10

Wonderful news: 'Girl From the North Country,' Conor McPherson's self-directed jukebox musical based on the songs of Bob Dylan, has reached Broadway after hugely successful runs in London and at New York's Public Theater, slightly altered but essentially the same as the show I reviewed in 2018, calling it 'a musical that does complete justice to the artistry of the great American songwriter whose genius inspired it.'
