When the Obie Award-winning Keen Company announced that “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow” star Ciara Renée would be join Nick Blaemire and George Salazar in their New York revival of Jonathan Larsen’s Tick, Tick… BOOM!, we were excited.
Ciara Renée previously appeared on Broadway in Big Fish and the 2013 revival of Pippin, assuming the role of Leading Player. She is perhaps best known for her TV role as Kendra Saunders/Hawkgirl in “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow,” as well as “The Flash,” and “Arrow.”
Tick, Tick… BOOM! will play at Theatre Row’s Acorn Theatre, where previews begin on 4 October 2016, before officially opening on 20 October, and will conclude its limited engagement on 20 November 2016.
Synopsis: “Before Rent, there was Tick, Tick… BOOM! This autobiographical musical, by the Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning Jonathan Larson, is the story of an aspiring composer questioning his life choices on the eve of his thirtieth 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. This exhilarating, funny, and moving work by the late Larson will speak to anyone who’s ever gotten lost on their way to finding their dreams.”
The Keen production is directed by Jonathan Silverstein and features musical direction by Joey Chancey, choreography by Christine O’Grady and script consultation by David Auburn.
T2c was at the meet and greet and had a chance to see a preview and talk to this exciting singer/actress.
