Girl from the North Country

Written and directed by Conor McPherson. Music and lyrics by Bob Dylan

The critically acclaimed, double Olivier Award-winning Old Vic production returns to London for a limited West End season. Playing at the Gielgud Theatre for 8 weeks only from 10th December 2019.

"Bob Dylan's songs have never sounded so heartbreakingly personal & universal. As close as mortals come to heaven on Earth." - Ben Brantley, The New York Times

1934. A time-weathered guesthouse in the heartland of America. Only a song can shake off the dust for one group of wayward souls-and old dreams may hold the promise of new beginnings. As they pass in and out of each other's lives, their stories awaken with passion, fury and extraordinary beauty.

Reimagining the music of Bob Dylan as roof-raising ensemble pieces and soul-stirring solos, celebrated playwright Conor McPherson (The Weir, The Seafarer) writes and directs this heartbreaking and universal story about family and love. Hailed by the Observer as the 'NO.1 THEATRE SHOW OF THE YEAR' audiences now have the chance once again to experience this 'magnificent' (Standard), 'astonishing' (Guardian) and 'piercingly beautiful' (Independent) production brought vividly to life by an extraordinary company of actors and musicians.

    This was the second time we have seen the musical. I have always loved and followed Bob Dylan. So what made it so good was that both well known and not so well known songs were woven together to help tell the story. The musical set in the 1930's perfectly suited both the music and the telling of the story. Different characters speared and interacted, inhabiting characters from Dylan's songs. Masterful reworking of some songs like 'I want you', slowed right down sang as a yearning ballad between two people unable to act on their feelings for each other. Another spine tingling moment among many is when the character with dementia Elizabeth sings the refrain "how does it feel, to be all alone", from Like a rolling stone. The singing, the acting and general story telling was of the highest quality. I cannot recommend this musical enough.

  • Depressing

    24 January 2020

    Very dark and depressing story. I would describe it as a play with music rather than a musical, it really wasn't what I was expecting.Difficult initially to understand what was going on, it seemed to be a madhouse and in fact later self identified as a madhouse. Am told the reason for Elizabeth's behaviour came in her song at the end but by then I wasn't really listening. The singing was very good but I could only identify a couple of Dylan's songs, they were so messed about.

  • Great Show

    24 January 2020

    Superb music, singing and stagecraft. Fascinating and enigmatic plot line. What's not to like.

  • Disappointing

    24 January 2020

    No coherence to story. Poorly drawn characters. Worst of all, the singers did not annunciate the lyrics, such an important feature of Dylan songs, and some of them just screamed.
