No disrespect to “Moulin Rouge,” but if “Girl from the North Country” had been included in that Tony Awards on Sunday, things might have been different.
The Bob Dylan inspired musical actually opened to raves on Broadway but was excluded from the 2020 abridged Tony Awards. Weird. They had a great opening night but it was right as the pandemic was unfolding.
Now “Girl” is returning with its original cast and trio of insanely gifted stars: Mare Winningham, Jay O. Sanders, and Marc Kudisch, plus Matt McGrath, Broadway’s MVP. Performances resume October 13th. You must see this musical. It’s going to win the Tony next June.
