Dylan's been done with Girl From The North Country. Done badly, I might add.

Remember, to do a jukebox musical you have to obtain the rights to use the artist's song and pay them the "grand rights," a term for using their songs. You pay the grand rights for every performance, or the show will not go on.

Yes, Benny & Bjorn of ABBA and the guys who wrote the Four Seasons song and Billy Joel made big bucks from their jukebox musicals.
