October 5, 4pm EDT
Kimber Sprawl, Jeannette Bayardelle & Sydney James Harcourt
Following a critically acclaimed sold-out run at London’s Old Vic and a West End transfer, the “astonishing” new show, "Girl from the North Country," from Olivier winner and Tony Award nominee Conor McPherson ("The Weir," "Shining City," "The Seafarer") and music icon Bob Dylan is in the middle of 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 Duluth, Minnesota in 1934. Named “one of the greatest playwrights working today” by Ben Brantley of The New York Times, McPherson has created a 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. BUILD hosts the stars of the Public Theater play, Kimber Sprawl, Jeannette Bayardelle and Sydney James Harcourt.
