Girl from the North Country Tickets
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. Hailed by the Observer as the 'NO.1 THEATRE SHOW OF THE YEAR' audiences now have the chance once again to experience this 'magnificent' (Standard), 'astonishing' (Guardian) and 'piercingly beautiful' (Independent) production brought vividly to life by an extraordinary company of actors and musicians.

Girl From The North Country featuring Bob Dylan's greatest hits to run on Broadway next year
Bob Dylan musical Girl From The North Country is set to transfer to New York's Belasco Theater in February 2020, it has been confirmed. The Broadway transfer comes after an acclaimed Off-Broadway run at the Public Theater in New York (2018) and after two highly successful runs in London, including the world premiere at The Old Vic Theatre (2017) and a highly lauded run at the West End's Noel Coward Theatre (2017-2018). The original London production was nominated for five Olivier Awards and won two, including Best Actress in a Musical for Shirley Henderson and Best Actress in a Supporting Role in a Musical for Sheila Atim, which is enough to make even the legendary John Gielgud proud. Many London theatre fans felt the award-winning musical ended too prematurely and a Girl From The North Country revival remains on many West End Wish Lists.

Girl from the North Country in 250 words
Girl From the North Country is the relentlessly melancholy story of a group of people living in America in the 1930s. The production (which feels like more of a play with music than a musical per se), is atmospheric and intimate, but ultimately misses the mark.
