Tick, Tick, BOOM!
Jonathan Larson Curtain Up 2019
Bellissima Productions kicked off the 2019-2020 theatre season with Tick, Tick… BOOM!, running during Buffalo Curtain Up at 8 p.m. Sept. 20 & 21, as well as a 2 p.m. matinee Sept. 22 at 555 Elmwood Avenue, Buffalo, NY 14222.
To be produced as a movie by Hamilton writer Lin Manuel Miranda, Tick, Tick…BOOM! is the story of Rent writer Jonathan Larson, “Jon,” and his grappling about whether to continue writing musicals, or adopt a more stable lifestyle, like his girlfriend, Susan, wants and best friend, Michael, has. A rock musical narrating Jon’s personal life before writing his breakout Pulitzer and Tony Award-winning show, Rent, Tick, Tick…BOOM! is the story of the 20-something existential crisis amid true passion.
