Hear that ticking?
It’s the official trailer for Tick, Tick… Boom!
With six weeks to go until its release, Netflix has revealed the film’s first full-length trailer, as well as the artwork, and the song “30/90” from the soundtrack.
Tick, Tick… Boom! tells the autobiographical story of Jonathan Larson, the struggling writer who went on to create the theatrical masterpiece Rent. Although Larson initially performed Tick, Tick… Boom! as a one-man show, it was further adapted for stage (and now screen) after his death.
The Amazing Spider-Man star, Andrew Garfield, has stepped into the writer’s shoes and can be seen both singing and playing the piano in the trailer.
The film is helmed by Lin-Manuel Miranda who is no stranger to the theatre (hello, Hamilton!) but is making his feature film directorial debut.
Tick, Tick… Boom! hits Netflix on November 19th.
