Previews for tick, tick … BOOM! begin on August 20, opening night is August 26, and it runs through September 18 on The Armory’s U.S. Bank Main Stage.

The work of Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning composer Jonathan Larson returns to Portland Center Stage after a 7-week run of his blockbuster musical Rent. Larson's autobiographical musical tick, tick ... BOOM! was written before Rent and is in many ways its origin story. Featuring a similarly rocking score, it offers a backstage tour of the love and sweat Larson put into making his Broadway musical dreams a reality.

One of PCS's 2022 JAW featured playwrights, Tyler Andrew Jones (Even Faster Than a Blink), returns in the role of Michael.
