HORRIBLE MUSICAL, DECENT VOCALS.

I’ve seen a plethora of musicals and this is the first I’ve left at intermission. Some of vocals were fairly good but that’s the only good quality.

1.0 star rating Randy from Chicago, Illinois

UNENGAGING DARK AND DREARY TRAGEDY WITHOUT A HERO.

Convinced my group of 4 to stay for second act but it just did not get any better. Lots of empty seats after intermission. Some good vocal talent singing poorly redone Dylan songs by characters you could not feel less invested in. Dark and dreary set probably appropriate for depression era Duluth but just so sad and hopeless.

1.0 star rating Mary from Chicago, Illinois

EVEN THE DEPRESSION WASN'T THIS DEPRESSING

One-dimensional. My parents were Depression babies & told many stories of folks sticking together, strength & community. None of that was portrayed. Singers were wonderful, but every song sounded the same, one choral dirge after the next. I feel Dylan fans will be mystified why songs were Jimmied into the script. Skip it.

BORING

No substance whatsoever. Caught myself dozing off several times. I wish I could get my 2 1/2 hours back.

INSULT TO DYLAN SONGS, HIGH-SCHOOL LEVEL PLAY

My wife bought me tickets to this show because I am a Dylan fan who grew up in NYC and loves theater. Also, we had driven through Hwy 61 this past summer, and were Dylan primed. I was afraid it was going to be another Billy Joel Getting Out cover band show, and I wish I had been right. What a disappointing mess. Unrecognizable Dylan songs and an incoherent story that needs to be read about to understand. I can't imagine this high-school level play could make it on Broadway, at least the NYC one. Painful to sit through. The only other Dylan experience at least as bad was Dylan himself at Rivinia reimagining his own songs to incomprehension. Can we at least get Dylan songs that sound like the ones on the albums I love? It's like that Star Trek episode where no one knows what the aliens are saying, and then it turns out to be the Declaration of Independence with jumbled syntaxes. Like that.

PAINFUL

Would have left at intermission but stayed because it simply had to get better. It did not. So average, poor story, random songs, random characters - cared about no one. Uninspired music - did not add but detracted from Bob Dylan’s music and lyrics.

1.0 star rating Adam from Boston, Massachusetts

CONFUSING, DEPRESSING, POORLY DONE

Confusing, meandering story; with Bob Dylan songs seemingly thrown in at random. Could have been an amazing show, but recommend avoiding.
