Sad, Great acting, Slow, Great singing, Great staging

See it if Dylan's lyrics set to music with a story of a family during the depression. People going thru hard times.

Don't see it if Not a happy theme show. Slow pace.

Great writing, Great singing, Slow, Absorbing

See it if you love Dylan's lyrics or are looking for a story of a family down on its luck.

Don't see it if depressing, real-life family dramas are of no interesting; if you aren't interested in the Dylan canon; if you want something fast paced

4/5 Stars. "'Girl' doesn't have much plot, but it provides a compelling setting for Dylan's plangent lyrics...McPherson uses Dylan's songs as atmosphere in the broadest sense: They are the air the characters breathe. And when the musical's cool gains force, it acquires a piercing chill."

Score: 90%. "'Girl From the North Country'...has made the well-worn trek from The Public to Broadway. Thankfully, the stellar cast and creatives from the US premiere downtown that made it such a hit (the world premiere was in London), have moved almost en masse to Broadway."

"Largely the same slow, sad, elliptical and occasionally exquisite theater piece I saw Off-Broadway. But my reaction to it has changed, for better and for worse. There are still a good number of tuneful melodies sung gloriously…But 150 minutes of dreary lives didn't wear as well."

"What makes 'Girl from the North Country'…so special…is the showcase it provides for one magnificent cover after another of Dylan's oeuvre. This is thanks largely to the extraordinary orchestrations and arrangements…and the singing of an exceptional cast."
