  • Overview

    Before Rent, there was tick, tick… BOOM!. This autobiographical musical by Jonathan Larson, the Pulitzer Prize– and Tony Award–winning composer of Rent, is the story of an aspiring composer who questions his life choices on the eve of his thirtieth birthday. First performed as a solo rock monologue by Larson in 1990, it was later revamped by playwright David Auburn as a three-actor piece and premiered off-Broadway on June 13, 2001 at the Jane Street Theatre. Lin-Manuel Miranda, Leslie Odom, Jr., and Karen Olivo star in the Encores! Off-Center production of this exhilarating work by the late, great Larson.

    The Lobby Project expands City Center’s performance space beyond the stage with a series of free pre-performance events featuring groundbreaking artists and performers.
