So is it a musical?

  • Absolutely Amazing

    19 August 2017

    A good story built around Dylan's songs performed unbelievably well. The cast was amazing, none of them stood above the others, they were all fantastic. I watched it with smiles at times and swallowing back the tears at other times.

  • Not good booking agency

    19 August 2017

    I didn't actually see show because when booking for the 25th it booked me to the 18th . I was booked at approximately 6pm for the same day so when I rang and e-mailed to correct my error I was asked to leave a message which clearly won't answered till next week. Be warned the booking site is not easily contactable and when booking on phone it is easy to select wrong dates. Will.not be returning.

  • Incredibly powerful

    19 August 2017

    The morning after - still contemplating the mesmerising performance of Girl From the North Country. The music and singing voices of the entire cast were particularly powerful and moving.
