tick, tick...BOOM!

tick, tick...BOOM! ★★★★½

Andrew Garfield explodes in Lin-Manuel Miranda's powerful and captivating directorial debut, 'tick, tick... BOOM!'. A semi-autobiographical tale of musical genius Jonathan Larson, the actor completely absorbs Larson's quirks and body language and somehow makes them his own. And boy, can he sing! Miranda makes it seem like he's been directing movies forever by how well he tells this story. It's well-paced and full of energy, filled with well-staged and memorable musical numbers. 'tick, tick... BOOM!' is not just a celebration of Jonathan Larson, but to musical theater as well.
