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. tick, tick...BOOM! takes you on the playwright/composer's journey that led to the Broadway blockbuster, Rent.
tick, tick...BOOM! is the winner of the 2001 Outer Critics Circle Award for Outstanding Off-Broadway Musical.
