Tick, Tick... Boom!

Tick, Tick... Boom!
An aspiring composer questions his life choices on the eve of his thirtieth birthday in Jonathan Larson's autobiographical musical.

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. Containing fourteen songs, ten characters, three actors and a band, Tick, Tick... Boom! takes you on the playwright/composer's journey that led to a Broadway blockbuster.

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 is presented as a rock musical filled with instantly appealing melodies and a unique blend of musical theatre styles.

Everyone will love this youthful, endearing and thoughtful piece, and will surely embrace 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.

Tick, Tick...Boom!
We are a community theatre contemplating the production of Tick, Tick...Boom!, by Jonathan Larson. Has anyone out there already produced it, or has seen it that might be able to tell me what the sets looked like in detail. The performance space we use is somewhat limited, not to mention after each weedend performance we would have to strike the set and put it back up after the sunday church services are through.(the church also uses the space) Please help! Thanks. Peter
