    - BOB DYLAN’S GIRL FROM THE NORTH COUNTRY AND BROADWAY'S REBIRTH: Despite historic, seemingly insurmountable setbacks of five openings, Bob Dylan's musical Girl from the North Country has gone on to become an enormous critical and commercial Broadway hit. Hailed as an experience “as close as mortals come to heaven on earth,” by The New York Times, the musical weaves two dozen songs from the legendary catalogue of Bob Dylan into a story of Duluth during the Great Depression to create a true future American classic.
    SLOW TRAIN COMING is a book about pressing on in the face of extreme adversity. This behind-the-scenes oral history follows the show from its beginnings at New York's Public Theater where it emerged as an underdog-of-a-show, through a fraught jump to Broadway against a backdrop of the emerging Covid-19 pandemic and longest shutdown in Broadway history which resulted in the theatre industry's subsequent fight for survival.
