5.0 star rating Martha from Schenectady, New York


This is simply a great play. The music, the acting and the different scenes are well done. It is easy to follow, there is nothing confusing and this play is not hard to follow. The actors are great, and professionals. Do not deter yourself from seeing this great piece of art. Those who gave it 1 star are jealous period.

5.0 star rating Amy from Cleveland, OH


Ignore the one star reviews. This touring show is very, very well done. People who expect all musicals to be “Hello Dolly” might be disappointed by “Girl From The North Country” (and I say that as a fan of “Hello Dolly”!). But this is a very grownup play with music. It has more in common with Greek tragedy than with most feel-good musicals. The Dylan songs aren’t *meant* to advance the plot—they keep the mood going and let you ponder all the feelings the characters are too emotionally inarticulate to express. The cast is dynamite. I was weeping by the end. Give it a chance. It’s thorny and different and wonderful.

5.0 star rating Peej from Boston, Massachusetts


I thought this show was totally awesome! I can't understand all of the low reviews. This is not a light-hearted musical, but that is not what I expected. This show has a great storyline with the Bob Dylan music enhancing it. All around great cast and strong performances. Stand outs were Jennifer Blood as Elizabeth Laine and Matt Manuel as Joe Scott

4.0 star rating MAI from Chicago, Illinois


“Girl From the North Country” is certainly melancholy & sad, but much more depressing are the reactions that I’m reading here. It’s as if this musical has to conform to more standard musicals because of a refusal to view it on any other terms or to recognize what it tries to accomplish. This is a mood piece, a musical tone poem, and its kaleidoscope of lonely, alienated characters face a time of misery. It has some of the greatness of “Our Town,” and its multitude of overlapping characters trying to survive in their own way reminded me of a Robert Altman movie. More important than the plight of each character is the summation of all of them — the mood that is cast through staging and these reworked, plaintive, stripped down Bob Dylan songs. This show aches…that doesn’t mean it’s a one-star show. Instead of harping on your disappointment with the “story,” perhaps you should ask a more important question borrowed from one of the great musical poets of our time: “How Does It Feel?”

4.0 star rating Cristopher Lamplugh from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania


An incredibly powerful and moving story. The vocals and acting were outstanding. Diyan’s songs are not the highlight. Rather the somber lyrics effectively reflect the mood and backdrop of the characters’ struggles. This play demands, and earns, your full attention from beginning to end.. well done

3.0 star rating Mary Tiseo from Boston, Massachusetts


The cast we saw last night were all excellent singers. Unfortunately some of the cast were very weak actors. Several leads couldn’t project the needed emotion to move from script to song. A couple were not able to project well and much of what they said was lost to the audience. It felt disappointing. I could see a great theater experience every so often, but then it fell well short of what was intended.

2.0 star rating Sue from Kansas City, Missouri


This was a disappointment and I would have left at intermission, but I had carpooled. The voices were amazing, but the story line was convulted and hard to follow at times. This needs to be re-written with more UMPH! Again, the music/singers were great, sorry their talents were wasted on a poor story line.
