Production Description
Following a critically acclaimed sold-out run at London’s Old Vic and a West End transfer, the “astonishing” (The Guardian) new show from Olivier winner and Tony Award nominee Conor McPherson (The Weir, Shining City, The Seafarer) and music icon Bob Dylan will make its American premiere.

Dylan’s inimitable songbook is authentically transformed into this achingly beautiful story of a down-on-its-luck community on the brink of change in Dylan’s hometown Duluth, Minnesota in 1934.

Named “one of the greatest playwrights working today” by Ben Brantley of The New York Times, McPherson has created a mythical new show, weaving the music of our greatest poet singer-songwriter into a piercing drama about home, heart, and the searching determination of the American soul.
