“Everyone has heard of Rent, but it’s time for you to hear about the man behind the story. You absolutely do not want to miss this.” – Kaylee Gonzalez, featured as Susan and others in Tick, Tick…Boom!
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 he made to achieve his big break in theatre. Containing fourteen songs, ten characters, three actors, and a band, Tick, Tick...Boom! takes you on the playwright/composer's journey that led to a Broadway blockbuster.
His girlfriend wants to get married and move out of the city, his best friend is making big bucks on Madison Avenue, and yet Jon is still waiting on tables and trying to write the great American musical. Set in 1990, this compelling story of personal discovery is presented as a rock musical filled with instantly appealing melodies and a unique blend of musical theatre styles.
Everyone will love this youthful, endearing, and thoughtful piece, and will surely embrace the universal ideal of holding onto your dreams through life's most difficult challenges.
David Joy is a familiar TA face and starring as Jon, the show’s protagonist. Says Joy, “I wanted to do the show because it was created by Jonathan Larson, the creator of Rent, whose characters capture my generation’s angst and passion. I understand Jon’s neurosis about turning 30 and feeling you have not ‘made it’ to where you thought you would.”
Kaylee Gonzalez is quickly making a name for herself at TA and eager to take on this challenging three-person show: “This has been one of the most challenging yet rewarding shows I have been a part of. Everyone transitioning between characters and the amazing three-part harmony results in a beautiful piece of work that will keep you intrigued and invested throughout the entirety of the show.”
“Charming…loveable.” – Talkin’ Broadway
“Searingly honest, frank, and unabashedly personal.” – Chicago Tribune
“Stunning stuff.” – Huffington Post
“A valentine to the creative spirit itself.” – Denver Post
The Theatre Alliance production is directed by Jamie Lawson and musically directed by David Lane. The cast stars David Joy, most recently seen at TA in White Christmas, and Kaylee Gonzalez and James Crowe, who were most recently seen in Tarzan.
