Watch it here:
tick, tick…BOOM! is an autobiographical musical by Jonathan Larson, who is the person behind the musical Rent. It’s about Jon, a young theater composer who works as a waiter in 1990 New York City and dreams of writing “the next great American musical.” As he gets closer to the day of his make-or-break performance showcase, he feels the pressure from the people around him. With the clock ticking, Jon must face the question of what he should do with the time he has?
Lin-Manuel Miranda makes his directorial debut in this film, with a screenplay by Steven Levenson (Dear Evan Hansen). It’s produced by Brian Grazer and Ron Howard for Imagine Entertainment, Julie Oh, and Lin-Manuel Miranda, and stars Andrew Garfield, Alexandra Shipp, Robin de Jesus, Joshua Henry, Joshua Rodriguez, Vanessa Hudgens, and more.
