Resonant, Profound, Great writing, Great singing, Ambitious

See it if Deep. Profound. Powerful. This is some of the best singing I've ever heard, and such a powerful story. Not your traditional show :)

Don't see it if you are looking for your typical musical. If you don't like Bob Dylan, or blugrass/folk music.

Dylan, reimagined.

See it if you like "serious" musicals-- or you're a huge fan of the songs of Bob Dylan.

Don't see it if character-driven shows with paper-thin plots turn you off. Read more

Resonant, Great staging, Great singing, Great acting, Absorbing

See it if You like Bob Dylan's music (I'm unfamiliar with it but enjoyed regardless)

New York Stage Review
May 29th, 2022

"McPherson offers something more than a great, big, flashing Broadway jukebox. The pungent, poignant Dylan shards are incorporated not necessarily as tied directly to the emotions the band of lost souls are feeling but more as an oblique comment on the characters’ states of mind."

"McPherson has written dynamic and interesting characters into the flophouse, however, he has not given the narrative enough time to deepen the audience’s relationship with them in order to feel the impact of their story."

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."
