Before Rent, there was Tick, Tick… Boom!.

TICK, TICK… BOOM! is an intimate, autobiographical pop/rock musical from Jonathan Larson, the creator of Rent, featuring Joshua Towns as Jon, Cat Maree Perez as Michael and Grace Johnson as Susan.

Jon is a struggling composer whose life seems to be going nowhere. About to turn 30 and still waiting tables for a living, Jon is desperately scared that he may never “make it” on Broadway.
The pressure to break out or give up only grows as Jon’s girlfriend, Susan, announces that she wants to get married and move out of the city, and his best friend, Michael, quits acting and finds huge financial success as a Madison Avenue corporate executive.
Jon’s new musical SUPERBIA has a great workshop but no prospects, and as time ticks by Jon wonders if maybe his friends are right, and it’s time to throw in the towel.

Originally created by Jonathan Larson a one man show, it was revised by David Auburn following Larson’s death in 1996, and expanded to a full length, three actor production.

A deeply personal peek into the life of an artist, TICK, TICK… BOOM! follows one man’s journey to define success on his own terms.
