Tick, Tick... Boom! (out Nov 11) is a semi-autobiographical musical set in the early 1990s based on the life of composer-playwright Jonathan Larson (Rent). I found him to be a very frustrating, one-dimensional character, despite Andrew Garfield's fine performance, and the whole "stay true to yourself" theme becomes unnecessarily repetitive. The supporting characters don't get much of a look in. Grade: B-.
