Tick, Tick...Boom by Jonathan Larson at the Africa Centre
Completely Productions presents Tick, Tick...Boom!, by Jonathan Larson, directed by Simon Carnell, at the Africa Centre, in Covent Garden, central London from 1 to 6 Oct 2012.
A musical look at the courage it takes to follow your dreams, tick, tick...BOOM! is Jonathan Larson's autobiographical tale of a young composer on the brink of turning 30 and falling into oblivion. His girlfriend wants to get married and move out of the city (tick,), his best friend is making big bucks on Madison Avenue (tick...), yet Jon is still waiting on tables and trying to write the great American musical (BOOM!). Containing fourteen songs, ten characters, three actors and a band, tick, tick...BOOM! takes you on the playwright/composer's journey that led to the Broadway show, Rent.
