Very excellent! However we saw it with Wilson Cruz's understudy. He was very good but I'm sure that the show is even better with Mr. Cruz. I would reccommend this show very highly.

Description

tick, tick…BOOM! tells the story of Jonathan, a promising young composer on the eve of his 30th birthday. His girlfriend wants to get married and move out of the city (tick), his best friend is making big bucks on Madison Avenue (tick), and he’s still waiting tables and trying to write the great American musical before time, and, unbeknownst to him, life, passes him by (BOOM!).

Directed by Scott Schwartz (Golda’s Balcony, Bat Boy), one of New York’s hottest young directors, who helmed the original New York and London production. Lortel Award-winner Chris Gattelli (Altar Boyz) choreographs. Ovation-winner Wilson Cruz (Angel in RENT), Tami Tappan Damiano and newcomer Andrew Samonsky in a “stunning turn” ( LA Times). Written by Jonathan Larson, the 1996 Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize winner for RENT, and adapted by 2001 Pulitzer Prize winning playwright for Proof, David Auburn.
