tick, tick...BOOM! (2021, D: Lin-Manuel Miranda) - S: Andrew Garfield


Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award winner Lin-Manuel Miranda makes his feature directorial debut with tick, tick…BOOM!, an adaptation of the autobiographical musical by Jonathan Larson, who revolutionized theater as the creator of Rent. The film follows Jon (Academy Award nominee and Tony Award winner Andrew Garfield), a young theater composer who’s waiting tables at a New York City diner in 1990 while writing what he hopes will be the next great American musical. With the clock ticking, Jon is at a crossroads and faces the question everyone must reckon with: What are we meant to do with the time we have?

Starring Academy Award nominee and Tony Award winner Andrew Garfield, Alexandra Shipp, Tony Award nominee Robin de Jesús, Tony Award nominee Joshua Henry, MJ Rodriguez, Emmy Award winner Bradley Whitford, Tariq Trotter, with Emmy and Tony Award winner Judith Light, and Vanessa Hudgens.

tick, tick...BOOM! is on Netflix this Fall.

I’ll likely end up watching it with my girlfriend as she’s a fan of Lin-Manuel Miranda. I’m generally not that into musicals.

This is one of the my favorite shows! I produced it for the theater company I used to run - it's very proto-Rent - you can hear stuff that Larson was working out in this show that he ultimately used in Rent. So excited for this!

I saw the play once, about 10-12 years ago, but in all honesty I don't remember much about it.

Interesting that this has Vanessa Hudgeons, who has appeared in several versions of Rent.

When I first saw the title, I thought it was a sequel to the 1970 film Tick, Tick, Tick

I think I’ve listened to the score but don’t remember it making much of an impression on me. Regardless I’ll see those because musicals, because Larson, and because LMM.

So, after seeing how In the Heights did, are the stars big enough for this? Garfield is known, but he doesn't seem like a movie star.

It’s on Netflix, so the BO doesn’t matter.

Netflix is the perfect place for it. The Prom was also fantastic there. These movie versions of smaller musicals don’t need to have huge budgets so they are great fits for streamers.

He’s been the lead in two Spider-Man movies. He was the Oscar-Nominated lead in a war movie that made $180M. He’s a star.

I'm actually not a fan of Rent overall, but this looks good.

Looks incredible. “tick…tick…BOOM!” Is one of my favorite musicals. Looks like the expanded the story quite a bit. I love this trend of putting these adaptations on streaming services. Perfectly suited for them.
