Sheila Atim has opened as Marianne Laine in THE GIRL FROM THE NORTH COUNTRY.

The show will run at The Old Vic until 7th October.

 

★★★★ 'Marianne, a black child adopted into the white Laine family and now mysteriously pregnant, fills "Tight Connection to My Heart" with tangible longing in a mighty turn from Sheila Atim.' - Broadway World

★★★★ 'It's a mood piece, marrying the myths of Dylan and the Depression into something timeless and elegant. 'Time Out

★★★★★ 'Bob Dylan's songs heard anew in magnificent, haunting show.'Evening Standard

★★★★★ 'And there is fine work from Sheila Atim as Nick’s desolate daughter.' The Guardian

★★★★ 'Sheila Atim displays a similar vocal prowess as the Laines’ daughter Marianne.' The Stage

★★★★★ 'It is genius the way that McPherson, who also directs, has tapped into the American folk era.' The Times

★★★★ 'Marianne is pregnant but without a partner, leading to a rendition of Tight Connection to My Heart in which Sheila Atim keens the refrain, “Has anybody seen my love?” to devastating effect.' Radio Times

★★★★ 'Hats off, too, to Sheila Atim whose delivery of Tight Connection To My Heart hooks us into the story.' Express

★★★★★ 'Apart from the performers already mentioned, I particularly enjoyed Sheila Atim as the daughter.'Independent

★★★★ 'The best moments occur when the songs are most closely adjacent to the storyline. Thus, when Laine’s adopted teenage daughter Marianne — pregnant by an absent man — sings ‘Has anybody seen my love?’, it works as a dramatic moment. This is sung beautifully by Sheila Atim, a tall and fascinating presence, surely bound for big things.' Daily Mail

★★★★★ 'Nick Lane’s unmarried but pregnant adopted daughter, Marianne, is empathetically portrayed by Sheila Atim who is the real deal as a vocalist and brings a vibrant, bluesy realism to her interpretations of Dylan’s more mournful compositions: great singer.'London Theatre 1

There's one thrilling moment early on when Sheila Atim's magnificent Marianne bursts into "Tight Connection to My Heart (Has Anyone Seen My Love)" and words and emotion are perfectly matched.' Whats on Stage

It’s hard to pick a stand out performance from this cast but Shelia Atim’s portrayal of Marianne Laine will stay with you forever. Able to convey a thousand different emotions with just one look, as well as possessing a voice that we’re not ashamed to admit brought us to tears several times, Shelia is so breath-taking that we’re dangerously close to running out of superlatives.
