When the Obie Award-winning Keen Company announced Nick Blaemire, Ciara Renée and George Salazar were starring in their New York revival of Jonathan Larsen’s Tick, Tick… BOOM!, we were excited.
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.”
T2c was at the meet and greet and had a chance to see a preview and talk to George Salazar an extremely talented musician/actor/singer.
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.
