Before Rent, there was Tick, Tick… BOOM! This autobiographical musical, by the Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award winning Jonathan Larson, is the story of an aspiring composer questioning his life choices on the eve of his thirtieth birthday. His girlfriend wants to get married and move out of the city, his best friend is making big bucks on Madison Avenue, but Jon is still waiting on tables and trying to write the great American musical. This exhilarating, funny, and moving work by the late Larson will speak to anyone who's ever gotten lost on their way to finding their dreams.
“Larson’s songs thrum with the intense feeling, larky humor, and musical vitality that are the hallmark of enduring theater. Heart-grabbing.”
– New York Times

A NOTE ON TICK, TICK...BOOM!
Thank you to the thousands of people who came out to see Keen Company's historic run of Tick, Tick... BOOM! at the Acorn Theatre.
Because of our incredible community of donors, we met a matching grant challenge made by The 42nd Street Development Corporation and were able to move Jonathan Larson's Tick, Tick... BOOM! into the largest theatre Keen has ever performed in! Enthusiastic audiences and critical acclaim led to extending the show four weeks and breaking every record the company has set.
We are so proud to have brought this story to the stage. And truly touched by your support.
"Hey, what a way to spend the day."
