The Times They Are A Changin', Twyla Tharp's musical built around the music of Bob Dylan, is going to Broadway on October 26th after playing to mixed reviews in San Diego earlier this year. "Twyla's artistry knocks me out," said Dylan in a statement. "Her production is the best presentation of my songs I have ever seen or heard on any stage." In related news, Dylan announced a late-summer tour of minor-league ballparks in advance of his new album (Modern Times, out on August 29th) with Jimmy Vaughan. It kicks off August 12th in Comstock Park, Michigan.
