Before the revolutionary rock musical Rent, Jonathan Larson had another story to tell... his own. tick, tick ... BOOM is a three-chapter pop rock musical about facing crossroads in life and holding on to your dreams that was first produced off Broadway in 2001. It tells the story of young Jonathan, a promising young composer on the eve of his 30th birthday. His girlfriend wants to get married and move out of the city (tick); his best friend is making big bucks on Madison Avenue (tick); and he's still waiting tables and trying to write the great American musical before time, and life, passes him by (BOOM ).
Jonathan Larson received the 1996 Pulitzer Prize for Drama for Rent, the libretto to which is available from Applause (978-1-55783-737-0.) Larson first performed tick, tick ... BOOM! as a rock monologue at Second Stage Theatre, The Village Gate, and New York Theatre Workshop. He died unexpectedly of an aortic aneurysm on January 25, 1996, 10 days before his 36th birthday.
