Sex, drugs and rock & roll – Tracy Star wanted it all!
Born into the depressing landscape of 1980’s Northern Britain, Tracy sought to escape the mediocrity of her life and make something of herself in the burgeoning music scene – with Bowie as her guiding light.
Tracy formed the band Northern Star, who went onto release singles, Now and Then and Heavyweight before breaking free under industry pressure and recording as a solo artist known simply as, ‘Pop Star’. Tracy Star soon became an indie superstar and then indulgence took it’s toll…
The Rise and Fall of a Northern Star offers a peculiar blend of comedy and tragedy interspersed with an original soundtrack and rhythmic pacey dialogue. The show has received brilliant feedback from audiences and critics, as well as receiving nominations for Manchester Theatre Awards, Best Fringe Production and the Manchester CityLife Awards.
Poetic, funny, and completely immersive The Rise and Fall of a Northern Star is an absolute triumph. Joanna Ing, Whatsonstage
..Stella Grundy throughout, has a compelling stage presence…this is truly in-your-face stuff…the storytelling is superb and the soundtrack is fantastic! Richard Jevons ~ The Public Reviews
Injecting a rich dose of witty humour, inspired storytelling, musical interludes, spiced up with some welcome northern charm, Stella brings her passion for the music world alive in this ambitious and brilliantly written show which she performs to perfection… in short, this is one of the most exciting shows you will ever see and you need to see it while it’s still accessible.
