A Monthly Culture Matrix For the Cosmopolitan Traveler

Girl from the North Country

Belasco Theatre / New York / Stage

It was back in 2012 that Bob Dylan’s management first approached Irish director and playwright Conor McPherson with the idea of making a musical from the veteran singer’s catalogue. The resulting production, Girl From the North Country, premiered at London’s Old Vic in the summer of 2017. Lifting 20 tracks from over 50 years of Dylan’s career, but never as a substitute for dialogue, the story is set in Dylan’s hometown of Duluth, Minnesota, and begins in 1934. “Conor’s beautiful production speaks across culture and generation in a way I’d never experienced before,” says Mary Beth O’Connor, one of the producers of the show’s Broadway run. “Like a spiritual injection.” —B.A.
