NORTH: The Musical

NORTH: The Musical


NORTH follows the journey of a teenage boy named Lawrence and his young mother, Minnie, as they escape the Deep South and travel North through the Underground Railroad, to seek their freedom. NORTH is based on actual accounts of slave escapes. While acknowledging the realities of slavery, the book and original jazz compositions brings out the full experience of freedom-seekers: optimism, bravery, playfulness, wonder, suspense and mystery.

Over a period of four years, Ashli St. Armant has developed this project alongside a team of prolific musicians, visionary artists, and awe-inspiring performers.
