About Tick Tick Boom

Tick Tick Boom starring Julie Atherton, Paul Keating and Leon Lopez.

Jonathan Larson's Tick Tick Boom receives its West End première at the Duchess in this brand new production. Following his tragically short life, Larson earned four Tony Awards and the Pulitzer Prize for Drama for Rent, which changed the face of contemporary musical theatre. Tick Tick Boom is an autobiographical look into his struggle to be heard and accepted as the musical voice of a new generation. A rarely produced piece of life-changing theatre, which will strike a chord with anyone who yearns to achieve a dream, regardless of their restrictions "Cages or wings? Which do you prefer? Ask the birds."

It's the week of Jonathan's 30th Birthday. His girlfriend wants to get married and move out of the city - Tick...  His best friend has bought a BMW and is moving uptown - Tick... and Jon's waiting tables, trying to write the great American musical, and feeling the pressure to choose between holding onto dreams or selling out for money - Boom!

Jonathan Larson, who tragically died of an aortic aneurysm shortly before the opening of his huge smash hit Rent, first conceived of Tick, Tick...Boom! in 1990 as a one man musical monologue about a young composer on the brink of turning 30.
