Curtain Bounce presents

tick, tick...BOOM!

8 Jun - 18 Jun 2023 Showing at The Art House Studio



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.

It tells the story of Jon, 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. 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.

Featuring just three actors and a live onstage band, this one act musical was adapted by Hamilton’s Lin-Manuel Miranda into an award winning 2021 Netflix film.

After their 2022 sell out season of Into the Woods Curtain Bounce can’t wait to bring tick, tick… BOOM! to the Art House.
