IF YOU LIKE A TRAGEDY WITHOUT REDEEMING CHARACTERS

This was a depressing play mixed with unfamiliar Bob Dylan music. I left the theater feeling angry. I’ve seen hundreds of productions and I rate Girl from the North Country as the worst show I’ve seen anywhere.

1.0 star rating Thomas Franco from Cleveland, Ohio

IT COULDN’T BE MORE DEPRESSING

Just plain misery: A story of misery without a hero. Maybe you can appreciate the b-side Bob Dylan music, but I doubt you’ve ever heard these songs before.

1.0 star rating Carol Reid from Cleveland, Ohio

GOOD SINGING - CONFUSING PLAY

Wouldn't exactly call this a musical but rather a depressing drama with a few songs thrown in. The only redeeming quality was the lovely vocals when they did sing. As for the play, it was very hard to follow; too many stories/dialongs going on. We left at intermission; something I've never done in 50+ years of theater going. Very disappointing.

CONFUSING, DEPRESSING

The story is confusing, Dylan’s songs are almost unrecognizable and it felt dark and depressing. We left at intermission.

1.0 star rating Matt from Chicago, Illinois

GIANT SNOOZE

Just an awful play/musical all around. It's disjointed, and somehow both too complicated and too simplistic at the same time. 8 or so story lines are introduced in the first act, and maybe 1 or 2 actually pay off in any sort of a satisfactory manner by the end. The plot is convoluted but ultimately understandable - but it's not worth understanding. Moving in and out of songs was clumsy, and the songs for the most part were dull. It's not that I don't understand what they were trying to do (this isn't a musical where the songs express what's happening or what a character is thinking - the songs are of a certain mood/evocative of feelings and give space to reflect on what's going on for the characters), it was just done in the most boring way possible. Also, this got advertised as "the Bob Dylan musical" - do not go see this if you're expecting to hear Dylan songs. The reinterpretations butcher most of them beyond recognition.
