Featuring a book and direction by Conor McPherson and music by Dylan, the Great Depression–era set musical offers a slice-of-life look at a small community in Duluth, Minnesota, where the Laine family operates a rundown guesthouse.
Girl From the North Country features scenic and costume designs by Rae Smith, orchestrations by Simon Hale, with additional arrangements by Hale and McPherson, lighting design by Mark Henderson, sound design by Simon Baker, and movement direction by Lucy Hind.
