“Bob Dylan once said ‘You should always take the best from the past, leave the worst back there and go forward into the future,’” said producers Tristan Baker and Charlie Parsons. “We are thrilled to go forward by welcoming audiences safely back to The Belasco this fall and reunite with our beloved Broadway family.
Girl From The North Country resonates powerfully today, and is a love letter to America celebrating its strength and resilience with the poetry of Bob Dylan’s music to unite, heal, uplift, inspire, and illuminate through the darkest of times.”
Set in Depression-era America, a guesthouse welcomes individuals from all walks of life. Passing in and out of each others lives, the sounds of Bob Dylan orchestrate a story of family and love.
Colin Bates will join the company in the role of Gene Laine, taking over from Colton Ryan. Cast members returning to the production include Todd Almond, Jeannette Bayardelle, Jennifer Blood, Law Terrell Dunford, Matthew Frederick Harris, Caitlin Houlahan, Robert Joy, Marc Kudisch, Luba Mason, Ben Mayne, Matt McGrath, Tom Nelis, Jay O. Sanders, John Schiappa, Austin Scott, Kimber Elayne Sprawl, Rachel Stern, Chiara Trentalange, Bob Walton, Chelsea Lee Williams and Mare Winningham.
After a world premiere in London, Girl From the North Country transferred to the Public Theater. The Bob Dylan musical then began its Broadway transfer at the Belasco Theatre on Feb. 7, 2020. In a review for New York Theatre Guide, “What makes the show click, start to finish, is that Dylan’s songs haven’t been shoehorned in to stir the plot in convenient or contrived fashion - an all too common jukebox trick. Songs have been carefully curated and, in some cases, streamlined, and included to create an overall atmosphere.”
A new cast video has also been released today, celebrating New York theatre. It is released on May 24, Bob Dylan’s birthday.
