North American Premiere

Join in today for early access

Following a critically acclaimed sold-out run at London’s Old Vic and a West End transfer, the “astonishing” (The Guardian) new show from Olivier winner and Tony Award nominee Conor McPherson (The WeirShining CityThe Seafarer) and music icon Bob Dylan will make its American premiere.

Dylan’s inimitable songbook is authentically transformed into this achingly beautiful story of a down-on-its-luck community on the brink of change in Duluth, Minnesota in 1934.

Named “one of the greatest playwrights working today” by Ben Brantley of The New York Times, McPherson has created a mythical new show, weaving the music of our greatest poet-singer-songwriter into a piercing drama about home, heart, and the searching determination of the American soul.

This production is now available for Partners, Public Supporters, and Members. Please log in for access.

Season 2018-2019

Girl From the North Country

Check out Duluth in the early 1930s! This photo is most likely from ~1930, so it predates the show a little bit, but it’ll certainly give you a sense of the city around the time of the play.

(You can read more, too, about what’s in this photo thanks to the News Tribune’s Attic blog!)

Girl From the North Country

Although the original version of this song was just Bob (it’s track two on The Freewheelin’ Bob Dylan, for those looking for it), we’re partial to the version that ended up on Nashville Skyline where he duetted with the late, great Johnny Cash. Here’s an olde video to whet your appetite.
