    Absolutely stunning music, acting, and design!

    by Greg on 4/14/24

    Many reviews express disappointment in the musical's departure from Bob Dylan's original context and its utilization of multiple storylines and characters. However, I found the unexpected placement of Dylan's music in the 1930s setting to be refreshing and intriguing. The orchestrations and musical arrangements were not only beautiful but also emotionally charged, resonating deeply with Dylan's core themes of existential wandering in a bleak world. Rather than detracting, the multiple storylines and characters added depth to the overall theme, reflecting the struggles of individuals trying to survive the Great Depression and connect with one another. These intertwined tales were both heart-wrenching and cathartic, portrayed with cinematic nuance by the talented cast against a backdrop of a beautiful set and lighting design, bringing the world to life in vivid three-dimensional detail. I highly recommend you see this!

    Worth seeing

    by Liz S on 4/13/24Music Hall At Fair Park - Dallas

    The cast was phenomenal and the story overall was engaging and unique. The cast and writers did a great job of portraying the desperation of this period in American history. However, I thought there were pieces that were a bit choppy - including some songs that felt a little forced into the storyline. Also, given the size of the cast, I would have liked a little more audience cueing of characters (garment colors, use of names, etc.), as I not only felt but also heard others in the audience struggling to track characters. Worth seeing, but as someone who has attended MANY musicals I saw some room for improvement.

    A Disappointing Evening

    by JM on 4/13/24Music Hall At Fair Park - Dallas

    The story was not cohesive and didn’t match the music. The language was bad and didn’t need to be. It really wasn’t even clear who the girl from the north country was. A very disappointing performance and evening.

    Not what expected

    by Robyn on 1/25/24Shea's Performing Arts Center - Buffalo

    Too many story lines made it hard to follow and you didn’t feel enough connect enough with individual characters. Claire may have been the only character that I was actually able to connect to. But I feel that she could even had a stronger storyline. The music was absolutely beautiful and the voices were stunning, but it just felt really hard to make the connection between the storyline and the songs, overall, a bunch of very sad stories that never really resolve

    Just okay

    by P j p on 1/24/24Shea's Performing Arts Center - Buffalo

    Music was good but difficult to follow the storyline. Acting was so so, felt like I was watching a high school play.

    Good

    by Norm on 1/23/24Shea's Performing Arts Center - Buffalo

    The music was great, but the story line was hard to follow. People I talked to after all wondered who was the Girl from the North County. I wouldn't recommend this to those who have never been to a show.
