Netflix’s Tick, Tick…Boom! is directed by Lin-Manuel Miranda from a screenplay written by Steven Levenson, based on the autobiographical musical by Jonathan Larson. The film stars Andrew Garfield (The Social Network), Alexandra Shipp (Tragedy Girls), Tony Award nominee Robin de Jesús (The Boys in the Band), Tony Award nominee Joshua Henry (Hamilton), MJ Rodriguez (Pose), Emmy Award winner Bradley Whitford (The West Wing), Tariq Trotter, with Emmy and Tony Award winner Judith Light (Transparent), and Vanessa Hudgens (The Princess Switch).

“The film follows Jon, a young theater composer who’s waiting tables at a New York City diner in 1990 while writing what he hopes will be the next great American musical,” reads the officialy synopsis. “Days before he’s due to showcase his work in a make-or-break performance, Jon is feeling the pressure from everywhere: from his girlfriend Susan, who dreams of an artistic life beyond New York City; from his friend Michael, who has moved on from his dream to a life of financial security; amidst an artistic community being ravaged by the AIDS epidemic. With the clock ticking, Jon is at a crossroads and faces the question everyone must reckon with: What are we meant to do with the time we have?”
