Jonathan David Larson's "tick, tick...BOOM!"
Jan 30-Feb 2
tick, tick...BOOM! is the story of an aspiring composer questioning his life choices on the eve of his 30th birthday. His girlfriend wants to get married and move out of the city, his best friend is making big bucks on Madison Avenue, but Jon is still waiting on tables and trying to write the great American musical.
Jonathan David Larson (February 4, 1960 – January 25, 1996) was an American composer and playwright noted for exploring the social issues of multiculturalism, addiction, and homophobia in his works. Typical examples of his use of these themes are found in the multi-award-winning musical Rent and tick, tick...BOOM! which is one of his earlier works.
Jonathan Larson received three posthumous Tony Awards and a posthumous Pulitzer Prize for Drama for the long-running and acclaimed rock musical, Rent.
