Based on the late Rent composer’s semi-autobiographical musical of the same name, tick, tick…BOOM! follows the young composer during a milestone birthday in 1990, through his theatrical ambitions and his relationships against the backdrop of the AIDS epidemic.

In his directorial debut, Miranda returns to the property after performing in the musical at City Center for a 2014 Encores! Off-Center production. Steven Levenson penned the screenplay, and Ryan Heffington served as choreographer. Miranda produces with Brian Grazer, Ron Howard, and Julie Oh; Levenson is billed as an executive producer with Julie Larson (Jonathan’s sister) and Celia Costas.
