GIRL FROM THE NORTH COUNTRY, written and directed by celebrated playwright Conor McPherson, boldly
reimagines 20 legendary songs of Bob Dylan, as they've never been heard before, including "Forever Young," "All
Along the Watchtower," "Hurricane," "Slow Train Coming," and "Like A Rolling Stone." GIRL FROM THE NORTH
COUNTRY will celebrate its L.A. Premiere at the Hollywood Pantages Theatre from May 14 - June 2, 2024.
GIRL FROM THE NORTH COUNTRY received seven Tony Award Nominations in 2022 and is the winner for Best
Orchestrations for Simon Hale. It's 1934 in Duluth, Minnesota. We meet a group of wayward travelers whose lives
intersect in a guesthouse filled with music, life, and hope. Experience this "profoundly beautiful" production (The
New York Times) brought to vivid life by an extraordinary company of actors and musicians.
In the heart of Hollywood, on Hollywood Boulevard, right down the block from Vine Street, stands the Hollywood Pantages Theatre. It's a fitting location: The Pantages has become one of the greatest landmarks of Hollywood, signifying both the glorious past and adventuresome future of the world's entertainment capital.
The Hollywood Pantages has a history as grand and diverse as the stage and screen fare which audiences have flocked to enjoy there for half a century. These days it's one of Los Angeles' leading homes of legitimate theatre (the five highest-grossing weeks in L.A.'s theatrical history were all shows at the Pantages) and a favorite "location" for tv shows, movies and music videos. In the past, it has been a movie house, with live vaudeville acts between features as well as the site of many gala premieres and "spectaculars." For ten years the Hollywood Pantages Theatre was the home of the glittering Academy Awards Presentations.
While the use of the Hollywood Pantages Theatre may have changed over the years, the theatre does not appear all that different today. After several touch-ups over the years, the Hollywood Boulevard showplace was renovated at the turn of the 21st century to recapture its 1930 look and luxury. When the theatre reopened in September 2000, some 300 people had repainted nearly every inch of the theatre, restored its outer lobby and missing chandeliers, refurbished its walls and prepared it for the new century.
