In this Playbill exclusive, hear Colton Ryan and Caitlin Houlahan perform "I Want You" from Girl From the North Country, Bob Dylan and Conor McPherson’s new musical now in performances at The Public Theater Off-Broadway. The production makes its North American debut following a critically acclaimed, sold-out run at London’s Old Vic and a subsequent West End transfer.
Girl From the North Country brings to life the tales of a local community on the brink of change in Duluth, Minnesota, in 1934. The new musical is written and directed by McPherson with music and lyrics by Dylan.
The principal cast is completed by Todd Almond as Elias Burke, Tony nominee Mare Winningham as Elizabeth Laine, Tony nominee Marc Kudisch as Mr. Burke, Sydney James Harcourt as Joe Scott, Kimber Sprawl as Marianne Laine. Houlahan plays Kate Draper and Ryan plays Gene Laine.
The cast also includes Jeannette Bayardelle, Stephen Bogardus, Matthew Frederick Harris, Robert Joy, Luba Mason, Tom Nelis, Tony nominee David Pittu, John Schiappa, Rachel Stern, and Chelsea Lee Williams.
Following an extension, Girl From the North Country will continue at the Public Theater through December 9. Performances began September 11.
