A semi-autobiographical rock musical, “tick, tick…BOOM!” takes the audience on a journey with a composer, Jon. On the eve of his 30th birthday, the gifted theater composer navigates love, relationships and the roller coaster that is life as an artist in New York City.
“tick, tick…BOOM!” was originally produced off-Broadway in June 2001 and was nominated for the distinguished Lucille Lortel Award for Outstanding Musical and for seven Drama Desk Awards, including Outstanding Lyrics, Outstanding Music and Outstanding Book of a Musical.
The book, music and lyrics are composed by Jonathan Larson, with guest direction and choreography by Darnell Pierre Benjamin and musical direction by Patrick Summers.
