Lin-Manuel Miranda’s feature directorial debut is based on the autobiographical musical of the same name by Jonathan Larson.
For Lin-Manuel Miranda fans, the steady tick tick tick of a clock has never felt like this musical. The multi-talented actor-musician is all set to release his feature directorial debut, Tick, Tick… BOOM!, the latest trailer of which was dropped by Netflix recently.
The upcoming film is based on Jonathan Larson’s autobiographical musical of the same name and stars Andrew Garfield in the lead. The trailer takes the viewers through the story of a young Larson, working a thankless job at a restaurant, hitting close to 30 and seemingly far away from achieving his dreams of being a musical composer.
