The score of the production features the songs of Bob Dylan, including hits like “Slow Train,” “Make You Feel My Love,” “Like a Rolling Stone” and more. “Dylan gave us total freedom to use any of his songs,” said McPherson in a Building Broadway interview with Broadway.com’s Beth Stevens. “Bob’s songs are like hymns.”McPherson got the sign-off from the legendary singer-songwriter to incorporate his songs from catalog into his first musical. Now, in an interview with The New York Times, Dylan has revealed that he not only signs off on Girl From the North Country as a whole; he ‘s a fan. “The play had me crying at the end. I can’t even say why. When the curtain came down, I was stunned. I really was,” he said. “Too bad Broadway shut down because I wanted to see it again.”The musical played a sold-out run at the Public Theater in the fall of 2018 before opening on Broadway on March 5. The Broadway cast includes Mare Winningham, Todd Almond, Jeannette Bayardelle, Jennifer Blood, Law Terrell Dunford, Matthew Frederick Harris, Caitlin Houlahan, Robert Joy, Marc Kudisch, Luba Mason, Ben Mayne, Matt McGrath, Tom Nelis, Colton Ryan, Jay O. Sanders, John Schiappa, Austin Scott, Kimber Elayne Sprawl, Rachel Stern, Chiara Trentalange, Bob Walton and Chelsea Lee Williams.As previously announced, a Broadway cast album, which was recorded on March 9 ahead of the Broadway shutdown, will be released in digital and streaming formats.

Thailand clinched the gold medal while China settled for the bronze.The women’s squad of Kristel Carloman, Mary Ann Lopez, Rizzalyn Amolacion, Jean Marie Sucalit, and Lhaina Lhiell Mangubat finished third behind champion Thailand and China.“This [French Open] was intended as pre-SEA Games exposure to help our athletes get better competition and boost their confidence, especially the ladies team,” said Caballero, who joined the trip to Paris as team manager. “Our women players were new and needed more exposure.”She noted the importance of training camps where Filipino athletes are exposed to the training regimen of foreign counterparts.“The camps in Thailand last year and Myanmar this year taught our team to better understand how other countries train,” said Caballero, whose election as vice president of the Asian Sepak Takraw Federation made her the first woman vice president for the Continental Sports Federation of Sepak Takraw.Caballero observed that her players “have also formed stronger trust and bond among teammates.”In the SEA Games, the men’s team will compete in three events for sepak takraw and two events in chinlone, which is also under sepak takraw. The women’s squad will join two events.Other members of the SEA Games-bound sepak takraw delegation are Alex Pangan, Jason Huerte, Joeart Junawan, John Jeffrey Morcillos, Mark Joseph Gonzales, Rheyjey Ortouste, Rhemwill Catana, and Ronsited Gabayeron.Sepak takraw, which offers 17 gold medals, will be held from Aug. 16 to 29 at the Indoor Stadium in Titiwangsa, Kuala Lumpur.
