This autobiographical musical by Jonathan Larson, the Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning composer of Rent, is the story of the composer on the brink of turning 30, his fear of falling into oblivion, and the sacrifices he made to achieve his big break in the theatre. Jon’s 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.
Talking about the production Director Guy Retallack said: “Jonathan Larson’s late 20th century neurotic rock musical is alarmingly prescient. At a time when work/life balance feels ever more precarious Jon’s search to make it in the Big Apple feels thrillingly relevant.”
Tick…Tick…Boom! will play at the Bridge House Theatre from the 30th September until the 27th October.
