'Girl From The North Country' To Reopen On Broadway October 13th


The Broadway production of Girl From The North Country will resume performances on Broadway on Wednesday, October 13, 2021. Celebrated playwright Conor McPherson boldly reimagines the songs of the legendary Bob Dylan in Girl From The North Country - the soaring masterwork about the dreams we keep close, the people we hold dear, and the place we call home.  

Girl From The North Country began performances on Friday, February 7, 2020 at the Belasco Theatre and opened on Thursday, March 5, 2020, before Broadway was shut down due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

“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. At the heart of Girl From The North Country is the Depression-era story about a community coming together to find hope while facing hardships during difficult and uncertain times. After the turbulent past year of experiencing great pain, suffering, and loss, the global pandemic has tested our resolve and resilience in countless ways, revealing in the process the deep divides and inequities in our society, and strengthening our commitment to change and moving forward. 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.”
