The Mary D. Fisher Theatre is proud to present the award-winning new musical drama “tick, tick … BOOM!” showing for a limited time: Jan. 1-6.
“tick, tick … BOOM!” is nominated for two Golden Globe Awards including Best Motion Picture: Musical or Comedy and Best Actor in a Musical or Comedy for 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.
Days before he’s due to showcase his work in a make-or-break performance, Jon is feeling the pressure from everywhere: from his girlfriend Susan, who dreams of an artistic life beyond New York City; from his friend Michael, who has moved on from his dream to a life of financial security; amidst an artistic community being ravaged by the AIDS epidemic.
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?
“tick, tick … BOOM!” features an award-winning ensemble cast, including Andrew Garfield, Alexandra Shipp, Robin de Jesús, Joshua Henry, MJ Rodriguez, Bradley Whitford, Tariq Trotter, with Judith Light, and Vanessa Hudgens. The film is written by Tony Award winner Steven Levenson, and produced by Brian Grazer and Ron Howard for Imagine Entertainment, Julie Oh, and Lin-Manuel Miranda.
“tick, tick … BOOM!” will be shown at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre for a limited run Jan. 1-6. Showtimes will be 1 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 1; 7 p.m. on Sunday and Monday, Jan. 2 and 3; and 4 p.m. on Wednesday and Thursday, Jan. 5 and 6.
