This is something hardcore Dylan fans have been waiting for over two years — especially those with a fondness for theater.
"Girl from the North Country," a musical that takes its name from a track off 1963's The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan, will soon be entering the big leagues of theater: Broadway.
Set in Duluth, Minnesota, in 1934 (seven years before Dylan was born there, so no, Bob isn't in it), the story focuses on a cast of characters "living on a knife-edge huddle together" in a local boarding house.
Now it's moving up to the Belasco Theatre, a landmark of Manhattan's theater district, with a premiere date set for March 5.
However, preview performances will begin on February 7, and yes, tickets are on sale now.
As the Rolling Stone notes, this is not the first Bob Dylan musical to grace Broadway; the first was 2006's The Times They Are A-Changin’.
As the magazine notes, the production was a "bomb" and closed after just three weeks.
