A New Musical By Jared Alexander & Eoin Corcoran
Northern Star follows the journey of a young man as he tries to bring back the woman he loves… No matter the cost.
With music and lyrics by Jared Alexander, this new musical sets out to process the subject of grief and how we as people hold it and handle it.
Originally conceived as a concert style production, Northern Star has evolved into a staged and expanded musical looking to be produced in the future.
Listen to the original concept recording of Northern Star when it releases on November 18th.
