Tick ​​Tick Boom reviews Call it simply electrifying

Critical reactions have fallen for Lin-Manuel Mirandainstructor debut Tik, Tik … Bom!, which comes to select cinemas tomorrow. The film is an adaptation of Jonathan Larsen‘s musical of the same name, which first debuted off-off-Broadway in 1990, before going to off-Broadway and a US Tour in the early 2000s, following Larson’s tragic death. Tik, Tik … Bom! is an autobiographical story about an aspiring composer named Jon, who questions living in New York City in the early 1990s. In the run-up to his 30th birthday, Jon is plagued by self-doubt and fear of his lack of performance, prompting him to question whether he chose the wrong career path. On top of existential fears, Jon begins to feel pressure from his girlfriend Susan – who dreams of a life outside the city limits and teaches ballet to wealthy children – and his friend Michael – who has already left the performing arts world for financial security.

Larson’s sudden death in 1996 left shock waves throughout Broadway society, but his legacy remains alive through the critically acclaimed musical Rent, for which he was in production at his death. Tik, Tik … Bom! has always had a reverent and somewhat gloomy feeling about it, given what an intimate picture it paints of Larson’s life just six years before his death, and based on the reactions on social media, it seems that Lin-Manuel Miranda and the cast have captured perfectly the magic of musicals.
