The great Irish playwright-director Conor McPherson (The Night Alive) goes American with a tale of Minnesota life and strife in the Great Depression, set to songs by no less an American icon than Bob Dylan. It's not the first time a major artist has tried to stage the back catalog of the Nobel Prize–winning bard; Twyla Tharp stumbled over it in the 2006 Broadway dance musical The Times They Are A-Changin'. Will McPherson's leaner, starker approach fare better? For its U.S. premiere at the Public, the show's ensemble cast includes such musical-theater pros as Stephen Bogardus, Mare Winningham, Marc Kudisch, Luba Mason, David Pittu and Todd Almond.
