I'm disinclined to acquiesce to your request.
I’m bloody furious Tobey Maguire & Tom Holland didn’t show up.
Tick, Tick… Boom! is a joyful celebration of musical playwright Jonathan Larson and a poignant love letter to the creative process of writing. It’s a well structured, foot-tapping extravaganza that shines thanks to stylish direction from Lin Manuel Miranda and a captivating turn from Andrew Garfield that steals the show and cements him as one of the most exciting performers out there today.
