Girl From the North Country, a Great Depression-era set musical featuring the music of Bob Dylan, will head to Broadway. Performances will begin February 7, 2020, at the Belasco Theatre, where it will officially open March 5.
The musical, featuring a book by director Conor McPherson, made its world premiere at London’s Old Vic before transferring to the West End. It made its U.S. debut at Off-Broadway’s Public Theater last year. The show is also set to play Canada’s Princess of Wales Theatre in September.
Set in 1934, the show offers a slice-of-life look at a small community in Duluth, Minnesota, where the Laine family operates a rundown guesthouse.
The Off-Broadway bow featured Mare Winningham, Colton Ryan, Stephen Bogardus, Marc Kudisch, Todd Almond, Sydney James Harcourt, and Kimber Sprawl; casting for the Broadway engagement will be announced at a later date.
The production features sets and costumes by Rae Smith, lighting by Mark Henderson, sound design by Simon Baker, orchestrations by Simon Hale, and movement by Lucy Hind.
Among the producers for the Broadway bow are Tristan Baker and Charlie Parsons for Runaway Entertainment, Steven Lappin, Sony Music Entertainment/Sony ATV, David Mirvish, The Dodgers, Len Blavatnik, Sonia Friedman, Dianne Roberts, John Gore Organization, Nederlander Presentations, Inc., Independent Presenters Network, Rod Kaats, Mary Beth O’Connor, and Patrick Catullo, as well as previous presenters The Old Vic and The Public Theater. Aaron Lustbader serves as executive producer.
