Girl From the North Country to Close on Broadway, Plans to Return

The slow train is departing Broadway. It was announced today that the acclaimed Broadway musical Girl From the North Country will play its final performance at Belasco Theatre on January 23, 2022, following 31 previews and 117 regular performances.

Girl From the North Country originally opened on Broadway on March 5, 2020, to rave reviews, but closed just a week later due to New York’s COVID restrictions. The production re-opened on Broadway on October 13, 2021. The production is in advanced conversations with the Shubert Organization to open again in the spring.

“Working on Broadway with this show has been an incredible and beautiful experience,” said producers Tristan Baker and Charlie Parsons. “We are eternally grateful to our amazing cast and crew for their unwavering commitment, fortitude, and professionalism to deliver the very best show each night. We are most appreciative to our fans and the Broadway community for welcoming us with open arms. We really believe in this show and are looking forward to seeing it in another Shubert house in the spring.”

Girl From The North Country is an important part of this season,” said Robert E. Wankel, Chairman and CEO of The Shubert Organization. “We have always been supportive of this show, and we are excited about bringing it to another theater in the spring.”

The production originated at The Old Vic in London. In addition to Broadway, it has played in the West End and Toronto, at The Public Theater in New York, and is currently playing in Sydney, Australia. Girl from the North Country‘s Original Broadway Cast Album was just nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Musical Theater Album.

Sanders, John Schiappa, Austin Scott, Housso Semon, Kimber Elayne Sprawl, Edward Staudenmayer, Rachel Stern, Anastasia Talley, Chiara Trentalange, Bob Walton, Aidan Wharton, Chelsea Lee Williams, and Tony and Academy Award nominee and two time Emmy Award winner Mare Winningham.

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. Girl From the North Country is a breathtaking new show that Ben Brantley of The New York Times calls “a ravishing production. You may find yourself thinking that this is as close as mortals come to heaven on Earth.”
