Girl From The North Country featuring Bob Dylan's greatest hits to run on Broadway next year

Bob Dylan musical Girl From The North Country is set to transfer to New York's Belasco Theater in February 2020, it has been confirmed. The Broadway transfer comes after an acclaimed Off-Broadway run at the Public Theater in New York (2018) and after two highly successful runs in London, including the world premiere at The Old Vic Theatre (2017) and a highly lauded run at the West End's Noel Coward Theatre (2017-2018). The original London production was nominated for five Olivier Awards and won two, including Best Actress in a Musical for Shirley Henderson and Best Actress in a Supporting Role in a Musical for Sheila Atim, which is enough to make even the legendary John Gielgud proud. Many London theatre fans felt the award-winning musical ended too prematurely and a Girl From The North Country revival remains on many West End Wish Lists.
Girl From The North Country transfers to Broadway
Featuring the beloved music of Bob Dylan, Girl From The North Country The Musical is set to take to the Broadway stage on 7 February 2020 for previews before officially opening on 5 March 2020. The New York City run will be followed by a run in Toronto that same year, which will open on 28 September and last until 24 November 2020.

Girl From The North Country Broadway cast
