Yesterday evening, the New York Theatre Guide took the "Slow Train" to the Belasco Theatre for the Opening Night of Girl from the North Country!

Having previously wowed the critics over the pond in London, and Off-Broadway at the Public Theater in 2018, the Broadway premiere certainly followed suit last night with our very own Joe Dziemianowicz describing the production as "the thinking theatergoer's jukebox musical" in his 4* review. Read Joe's full review here and our full New York Theatre Guide to Girl from the North Country here.

The beautifully arranged hits of Bob Dylan from "Like a Rolling Stone" to "Forever Young" filled the Belasco's auditorium last night, sending chills up the spines of the VIP guests in attendance and after the final curtain fell, we caught up with the talented cast at the show's official after party at Bryant Park Grill just a few blocks away.

Check out what Tony & Academy Award nominee & two-time Emmy Award winner Mare Winningham, Tony Award nominee Marc KudischJay O. SandersKimber Elayne Sprawl, and Hamilton alum Austin Scott have to say about being a part of this soul-stirring production in our Opening Night video...


Girl from the North Country Tickets are available now.
