Student Blog: TICK, TICK... BOOM! is a Great Tribute to Jonathan Larson and the Show' Photo Student Blog: TICK, TICK... BOOM! is a Great Tribute to Jonathan Larson and the Show's Themes
by Student Blogger: MC Chocolate - Dec 27, 2021

The original musical is by Jonathan Larson, but you have to acknowledge all the style and heart that Lin-Manuel Miranda adds to his work in Netflix's tick, tick... BOOM! Clearly, this was a tribute Miranda paid to one of the songwriters who changed the Broadway industry. Rent is one of those heartbreaking and joyful stories about youth. This theme is reflected in tick, tick... BOOM! with good music, choreography and the excellent performance of Andrew Garfield. With many cameos from the Broadway industry and witty lines full of irony and emotion, TTB does a pretty good job highlighting the original stage show. It may even cause you to shed a few tears.
