“Girl from the North Country” will return to Broadway for 50 performances this spring.
The musical will resume performances at the Belasco Theatre on April 29 and run through June 11. In doing so, “Girl from the North Country,” which is Tony eligible this season, may be able to invite straggling voters before final decisions are made.
The Shubert Organization had originally announced that the musical would return to another theater on Broadway. “To Kill a Mockingbird” announced it would reopen at the Belasco Theatre on June 1, which now conflicts with the schedule for “Girl from the North Country.”
A spokesperson said that “To Kill a Mockingbird” will still return to Broadway, but was unable to confirm further details.
“Girl from the North Country” originally opened on Broadway on March 5, 2020, but was forced to close due to the pandemic. It reopened on Oct. 13, 2021, but then closed again on Jan. 23, 2022, amid the surge in COVID-19 cases. Ahead of its closure, in the week ended Jan. 9, the show played to an audience at 19% capacity and grossed $107,073.
Returning cast members to “Girl from the North Country” include Todd Almond, Colin Bates, Jeannette Bayardelle, Jennifer Blood, Matthew Frederick Harris, Caitlin Houlahan, Robert Joy, Luba Mason, Ben Mayne, Matt McGrath, Tom Nelis, Jay O. Sanders, John Schiappa, Austin Scott, Housso Semon, Kimber Elayne Sprawl, Rachel Stern, Chiara Trentalange, Bob Walton, Aidan Wharton, Chelsea Lee Williams and Mare Winningham.
Marc Kudisch will not return to the production due to a conflicting role in the Alliance Theatre production of “Trading Places.” Craig Bierko will take over his role.
The Broadway production of “Girl from the North Country” is produced by Tristan Baker and Charlie Parsons for Runaway Entertainment. The musical, which features the songs of Bob Dylan, is written and directed by Conor McPherson.
