If you’re ready to cry, today I’m talking about Tick Tick Boom! Join me in the discussion of life in Bo Bo Bohemia.
Lin Manuel Miranda’s latest musical project starring Andrew Garfield is Tick Tick Boom! A musical about Jon Larson who wrote this musical and Rent, redefining what Broadway could be. In the movie, Jon Larson has spent the last 8 years of his life writing and rewriting Superbia: a rock musical with social commentary. He’s juggling friends, girlfriend, being broke, and trying to make it in New York during the ’90s.
I don’t know about you, but when this movie first came out the songs were all over Tik Tok but here is the soundtrack just in case: 😉
Comments while watching
- Reminiscent of rent opening (musical not movie)
- So this is the song that blew up on my tik tok
- Are you Angel’s inspiration?
- Jon seems like a direct parallel to Mark
- Found the Roger and Mimi inspiration?
- Roger = Roger?
- Voicemails with Joann’s parallel
- Michael = Benny?
- Susan = Maureen?
- Ah the second song that’s been on my tik tok
- Please take the jingle job. You can keep your side hustle
- Or is this fantasy 🎶🎶
- Ah so you based the apartment off of your apt
- Love the harmonies
- Rip Sondheim
- Rent is rock and Broadway.
- I need to look up who was in this movie
- Oh look it’s the third song on my tik tok rn
- Ah so this is a breakup
- You could and you wouldn’t have to give up your dreams
- I wish you’d listen to Michael and your ex gf
- Really cool visual in the pool
- Thanks Rosa for the simile
- Michael: the ultimate hype man
- Her song is really good
- Write what you know is the first piece of advice everyone is given
- Ah so you told him
- That feeling you have is anxiety + grief and they are a bad combo
- So now my question is whether or not you finish Rent before he dies
- So Larson lives to 35
- I appreciate the clips of the real Jon Larson
