Tick, Tick … Boom!

Before the explosion that was Jonathan Larson’s musical, “Rent”, there was “Tick, Tick … Boom!” The musical opens with a ticking sound that the central character—Jon, an aspiring composer—explains to the audience this way. “The sound you are hearing is not a technical problem. It is not a musical cue. It is not a joke. It is the sound of one man’s mounting anxiety. I am that man.”
