This is the life bohemia… No, we’re not paraphrasing “La Vie Boheme” from Rent – however we somewhat sort of are? Netflix dropped the first teaser trailer for the film variation of late composer and playwright Jonathan Larson’s autobiographical musical Tick, Tick…Boom!
Andrew Garfield Will Be The Lead Star In Tick, Tick…Boom!
It stars Andrew Garfield as Jon, a young theater composer who’s waiting tables at a New York City diner in 1990 while writing what he expects will be the following incredible American musical. Topic that is relatable to the movie’s director, Pulitzer Prize, and Tony winner Lin-Manuel Miranda making his directorial debut here. One of Larson’s previous works, Tick, Tick… Blast! follows Jon as he feels mounting pressure in the days paving the way to an exhibit of his work. His girlfriend, Susan (Alexandra Shipp), dreams of an artistic life outside of New York City, while his companion, Michael (Robin de Jesús), has deserted his own imaginative dreams for a life of financial security.
Things close in from all sides, as Jon’s artistic community is desolated by the AIDS pestilence. The clock is in a real sense ticking as Jon considers the well-established inquiry: how are we intended to manage the time we have? Larson, obviously, changed musical theater with Rent, which proceeded to win the Pulitzer Prize. Nonetheless, he wasn’t there to observe it, subsequent to biting the dust unfortunately of an aortic aneurysm the morning of Rent’s first off-Broadway preview.
The cast is balanced by Joshua Henry, Mj Rodriguez, Bradley Whitford, Tariq Trotter, Judith Light, and Vanessa Hudgens. The original stage production debuted in 1990 under the title Boho Days at the Second Stage workshop in New York. Larson performed it’s anything but a one-man “rock monologue.” He then, at that point redeveloped it under the title Tick, Tick… Blast! what’s more, performed it in 1992. The film will debut in select theaters and on Netflix this fall.
