Before “RENT”, there was “Tick, Tick... Boom!”. This autobiographical musical by Jonathan Larson, the Pulitzer Prize- and Tony Award-winning composer of “RENT”is the story of a "Promsing Young Composer" and the sacrifices that he made to achieve his big break in theatre.
His girlfriend Susan wants to get married and move out of the city, his best friend Michael is making big bucks on Madison Avenue and, yet, Jon is still waiting on tables and trying to write the next great American musical.
Set in 1990, this compelling story of personal discovery is presented as a rock musical filled with instantly appealing melodies and a unique blend of musical theatre styles.
Everyone will love this youthful, endearing and thoughtful piece, and will surely embrace the universal ideal of holding onto your dreams through life's most difficult challenges.
Tick, Tick... BOOM! Was orginally produced off Broadway in June 2001 by Victoria Leacock, Robyn Goodman, Dede Harris, Lorie Cowen & Beth Smith.
