Girl from the North Country will open on Broadway next year, it has been announced.

The musical, which has music and lyrics by Bob Dylan and a book by Conor McPherson, will begin performances at the Belasco Theatre on February 7, 2020.

The production originated at London’s Old Vic before transferring to the West End. It then moved to New York for a run at the off-Broadway Public Theater last year.
