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 composer and the sacrifices that he made to achieve his big break in theatre.
His girlfriend wants to get married and move out of the city, his best friend is making big bucks on Madison Avenue and, 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 universal ideal of holding onto your dreams through life's most difficult challenges. Tick, Tick... Boom! features a three-person cast showcasing strong pop/rock singers and allowing performers to make creative character choices.
