THE CLOCK IS ALWAYS TICKING
Before the Pulitzer Prize and Tony award-winning RENT, Jonathan Larson wrote tick, tick… BOOM!, originally conceived as a “rock monologue” and was produced off-off-Broadway in 1990. It wasn’t after Larson’s death prior to the opening of RENT in 1996 that producer Victoria Leacock asked David Auburn (Pulitzer prize winner for Proof) to expand tick, tick… BOOM! and bring it to off-Broadway. Auburn reconfigured the “rock monologue” into a three-actor chamber musical and the reworked version debuted at the Jane Street Theater in May of 2003.
