The West End transfer of Girl From the North Country officially opened January 11 at the Noël Coward Theatre. The new musical from Conor McPherson and Bob Dylan began performances in the West End December 29, 2017, after playing the Old Vic last fall.

Drawing on Dylan’s iconic songbook, the story brings to life the tales of a local community on the brink of change in Dylan’s hometown of Duluth, Minnesota, in 1934.
