Today, the Tony Nominated Broadway musical Girl From The North Country announced that the production was professionally captured prior to its re-opening on April 29th for future use.
“We feel that now was the right time to capture this incredible production,” said producers Tristan Baker and Charlie Parsons. “This was the right time with the right cast, and everything fell into place perfectly. This story is beautiful and deserves to be seen by audiences all over, even if they can’t make it to the theater. We are starting discussions with distributors to find this film a home.”
The film was produced by Totally Theatre Productions led by Gavin Kalin, with Tim van Someren serving as Director of the film. The full original creative team of Girl From The North Country including Rae Smith, Lucy Hind and Mark Henderson, as well as recent Tony Award nominees Conor McPherson, Simon Hale, and Simon Baker reassembled in New York to work alongside Totally Theatre throughout the process.
Girl From The North Country, written and directed by celebrated playwright Conor McPherson, boldly reimagines 20 legendary songs of Bob Dylan, as they’ve never been heard before. This spiritually uplifting and beautiful story is set in Duluth, MN, in 1934, when a group of wanderers’ lives intersect at a house full of music, life and hope.
