tick, tick…Boom!

The Outre Theatre Company presents
tick, tick…Boom!
Book by Jonathan Larson
Monday, May 14

Jonathan Larson, the creator of the Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize winning musical Rent, penned this autobiographical musical which tells the story of an aspiring composer living in Soho at the end of the 1980s. Torn between the struggles of trying to achieve his dreams and the siren song of a settled, middle-class life, Johnny searches for the courage to risk everything in the pursuit of his art. His girlfriend wants to settle down and raise a family, his best friend is a financially successful ad executive — and Johnny waits tables and composes as he strives for his big break.

Winner of the Outer Critics Circle Award and the Obie Award for best actor, tick, tick…Boom! follows the process which led to the creation of the hugely successful Rent, and tells us the story of pursuing the things which fulfill you.

Tonight: 7 PM
Place: Nova Southeastern University
