Overview


Synopsis

Tick, Tick, Boom is the autobiographical tale of Jonathan Larson a struggling, young composer whose life seems to be going nowhere. About to turn thirty and still waiting tables for a living, Jon is desperately scared of his future. The pressure on Jon increases as his girlfriend announces that she wants to get married and move out of the city. To make matters worse, Jon's best friend, Michael, has abandoned the Bohemian lifestyle, and is now making it rich on Madision Avenue. This musical depicts the composer's journey from despairing and desperate struggling artist to successful author of the Broadway mega-hit, Rent.
