GIRL FROM THE NORTH COUNTRY at the Noel Coward Theatre

February 17, 2018

GIRL FROM THE NORTH COUNTRY at the Noel Coward Theatre is hauntingly beautiful. Really interesting and not quite like anything I have seen before on stage. Written and directed by Conor McPherson with the lyrics and music of Bob Dylan masterfully orchestrated and arranged by Simon Hale this musical is epic in its impact. Conor McPherson is a master at theatre and he has used the incredible music of Bob Dylan to masterful effect.

The best of theatre takes us on a journey to a new place of understanding. This is a simple story which illuminates the depths of the tragedy of the American depression in the 1930’s. Through the heartfelt and authentic portrayals I felt I was apart of this group. Every single performance is utterly brilliant. I was left breathless after so many of the individual musical numbers.

Ciaran Hinds, Shirley Henderson, Sheila Atim, Arinze Kene, Jack Shalloo and Debbie Kurup are all exceptional award winning performances. Everyone on stage in this production represents the very best currently on stage in the West End. Best original musical I have seen for years. Amazing.
