tick, tick… BOOM!, the autobiographical rock musical detailing the journey that led to Jonathan Larson’s big break and Broadway blockbuster, Rent.

About tick...tick...BOOM!:

Susan wants to get married, move out of the city, and away from the life of impoverished artistry. Michael is making big money on Madison Avenue, yet Jon is still waiting on tables and trying to write the great American musical. Set in 1990, this compelling story of personal discovery embraces the ideal of holding onto your dreams through life’s most difficult challenges.
