tick, tick... BOOM!, with book, music and lyrics by Jonathan Larson, script consultant by David Auburnand vocal arrangements and orchestrations by Stephen Oremus, is an autobiographical musical by the Pulitzer Prize- and Tony Award-winning composer of Rent.

Its London production in 2005 starred Neil Patrick Harris.
