Tick, Tick… BOOM!, composed by the creator of hit musical Rent will play for one week only at the Parade Playhouse, Parade Theatre from July 12–16.
A musical look at the courage it takes to follow your dreams, Tick Tick…BOOM! is Jonathan Larson’s autobiographical tale of a young composer on the brink of turning 30 and falling into oblivion.
