Netflix's Tick, Tick...Boom! starring Alexandra Shipp is Streaming Now
Netflix's new music themed movie, Tick, Tick... Boom! is an ode to Broadway musicals and the people who make them, featuring autobiography of Jonathan Larson, the astonishingly talented writer/composer of Rent, who died just before the show’s opening night. Alexandra Shipp plays Susan, who was one of Jonathan Larson's girlfriends.
Released on November 12, 2021, the movie portrays the story of a promising theater composer in his 30s, navigating love, friendship and the pressure to create something great before time runs out. It's also a tribute and a show of gratitude for the almost baton-like passing of support from the makers of musical theater, whom Larson views as a vanishing species. Adapted from the autobiography of Jonathan Larson and brought to the screen by Lin-Manuel Miranda and Steven Levenson , Tick, Tick.. Boom! presents a slightly more realistic yet sensationally cinematic depiction of La Vie Bohème.
The cast of the movie includes Andrew Garfield as Jonathan Larson, Alexandra Shipp as Susan, Robin de Jesus as Michael, Vanessa Hudgens as Karessa, Joshua Henry as Roger, and Jonathan Marc Sherman as Ira Weitzman.
