“Working on Broadway with this show has been an incredible and beautiful experience,” said producers Tristan Baker and Charlie Parsons. “We are eternally grateful to our amazing cast and crew for their unwavering commitment, fortitude, and professionalism to deliver the very best show each night. We are most appreciative to our fans and the Broadway community for welcoming us with open arms. We really believe in this show and are looking forward to seeing it in another Shubert house in the spring.”
“Girl From the North Country is an important part of this season,” added Robert E. Wankel, chairman and CEO of The Shubert Organization. “We have always been supportive of this show, and we are excited about bringing it to another theatre in the spring.”
