A musical based around Bob Dylan's classic catalogue will open off-Broadway in September. The musical, Girl From The North Country, was announced by Off Broadway’s Public Theater, and ran on London's West End between July 2017 and this past March. Noted actress Mare Winningham and Glee's Samantha Marie Ware will be among the featured cast. The show begins previews at The Public’s Newman Theater on September 11th, with an official opening night set for October 1st and an expected run to play through November 4th.

Deadline.com reported, "As described by The Public, the new musical 'weaves the music of our greatest poet-singer-songwriter into a piercing drama about home, heart, and the searching determination of the American soul. Dylan’s inimitable songbook is authentically transformed. . . into an achingly beautiful story of a down-on-its-luck community on the brink of change in Duluth, Minnesota, in 1934."

Girl From The North Country features such Dylan evergreens as "Girl From The North Country," "Like A Rolling Stone," "I Want You," "Slow Train Coming," "Forever Young," and "Idiot Wind," among others.

A while back, Bob Dylan spoke candidly about who he is beyond the music: "I can't describe myself in one or two words, considering the fact that I've written over 300 and 400 songs that do describe me. I gotta let those people speak for me. If you wanna find out what I'm like, you usually have to ask other people. Usually you can find out better from someone who don't know me. I think it's wrong for a person to talk about themself (sic). People. . . a person's life speaks for itself. Y'know, if you've done good things, people will spread the news. And if you've done bad things, people will spread the news, too."
