Girl From the North Country, a Bob Dylan Musical, is Coming to New York

Girl from the North Country was originally released by Bob Dylan on the Freewheelin' album in 1963,  Six years later he recorded a duet with Johnny Cash of the Nashville Skyline album.  I read some months back in the Dylan fanzine Isis that a musical of Dylan songs titled Girl from the North Country was showing in London.  At that time I was able to get the soundtrack CD of that show as I reported in this journal.

I just found out from my friend Roy that this show is opening at the Public Theater in Manhattan on September 11 and will play until November 18.  As of today, tickets are not available.  Of course, I will be there.

In 2006 a Dylan musical called The Times They Are A'Changin' flopped on Broadway.  I think Girl from the North Country has a storyline that was lacking in the 2006 production.  If it succeeds at the Public Theater, perhaps it will come to Broadway.
