tick, tick…Boom!

by Jonathan Larson   –   dir. Marissa Wolf   –   Portland Center Stage

«Portland Center Stage’s production is an unqualified triumph.”  – Willamette Week


Before he electrified the world with Rent, Jonathan Larson was a young man struggling to make his mark in the theater. While he waits tables and seeks his big break, the pressure to give it all up grows as Jon approaches his 30th birthday. Will he sell out to keep the lights on? Will he lose the love of his life? Will he finally write the soaring song that can change everything? And if he does, will anyone be there to see it?
