The Keen Company revival of the late Jonathan Larson’s autobiographical musical Tick, Tick...BOOM! will welcome Spring Awakening star Lilli Cooper November 22. She will replace Ciara Renée, who is performing through November 20. The Off-Broadway company also announced an extension, with performances now set to play through December 18 at the Acorn Theatre at Theatre Row.
The production, which officially opened October 20 currently stars Renée, George Salazar, and Nick Blaemire. The revival is helmed by Keen Company Artistic Director Jonathan Silverstein, with music direction by Joey Chancey.
David Auburn serves as script consultant on the production, and Christine O’ Grady choreographs. Preview performances began October 4.
Written before his groundbreaking musical Rent, Larson’s Tick, Tick...BOOM! is described as “the story of an aspiring composer questioning his life choices on the eve of his thirtieth birthday. His girlfriend wants to get married and move out of the city, his best friend is making big bucks on Madison Avenue, but Jon is still waiting on tables and trying to write the great American musical. This exhilarating, funny, and moving work by the late Larson will speak to anyone who’s ever gotten lost on their way to finding their dreams.”
