Before Rent, there was tick, tick…BOOM!

Written by the late Jonathan Larson and directed by BoHo Artistic Associate Bo Frazier, tick, tick…BOOM! tells the autobiographical story of Jonathan, a struggling New York composer entering his 30s. The year is 1990, the AIDS crisis is escalating, and Jonathan is growing increasingly desperate to leave his dead-end job and write the next great American musical. Jonathan’s girlfriend Susan and his best friend Michael announce major life changes, and Jonathan begins to wonder if the ticking clock is running out on his Broadway dreams. In BoHo Theatre’s groundbreaking production, director Bo Frazier reimagines this compelling rock musical as a celebration of trans joy, love, and creativity.
