The West End transfer of Girl From the North Country, the new musical from Conor McPherson and Bob Dylan, has found its cast.
Following a hit world-premiere run at the Old Vic earlier this fall, the production is set to begin performances December 29 at the Noël Coward Theatre ahead of an official opening January 11, 2018.
Returning to the show from the world premiere will be Sheila Atim as Marianne, Bronagh Gallagher as Mrs Burke, Shirley Henderson as Elizabeth, Ciarán Hinds as Nick, Claudia Jolly as Katherine, Arinzé Kene as Joe Scott, Debbie Kurup as Mrs Neilsen, Sam Reid as Gene Laine, and Jack Shalloo as Elias.
They are joined by new cast members David Ganly as Mr Burke, Adam James as Dr. Walker, Karl Johnson as Mr Perry, and Tim McMullan as Reverend Walker, as well as ensemble members Hannah Azuonye, Mary Doherty, and Emmanuel Kojo.
The musical, written and directed by McPherson with music and lyrics by Dylan, is set in the singer’s hometown of Duluth, Minnesota, in 1934. Drawing on Dylan’s iconic songbook, the story brings to life the tales of a local community on the brink of change.
The West End engagement is currently scheduled through March 31.
The cast recording was released September 29; a double vinyl edition will be available beginning December 15.
