As we celebrate today’s launch of In the Heights, I’m super excited to share the trailer for director Lin-Manuel Miranda’s upcoming Netflix film tick, tick…BOOM! This project combines a few things I absolutely love: musical theater, a hero who is a struggling storyteller, and anything Lin-Manuel touches. You know I’ll be all over sharing this as soon as I can, but for today, I hope you’ll enjoy a sneak peek at the trailer.

Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award winner Lin-Manuel Miranda makes his feature directorial debut with tick, tick…BOOM!, an adaptation of the autobiographical musical by Jonathan Larson, who revolutionized theater as the creator of Rent. The film follows Jon (Academy Award nominee and Tony Award winner Andrew Garfield), a young theater composer who’s waiting tables at a New York City diner in 1990 while writing what he hopes will be the next great American musical. Days before he’s due to showcase his work in a make-or-break performance, Jon is feeling the pressure from everywhere: from his girlfriend Susan, who dreams of an artistic life beyond New York City; from his friend Michael, who has moved on from his dream to a life of financial security; amidst an artistic community being ravaged by the AIDS epidemic. With the clock ticking, Jon is at a crossroads and faces the question everyone must reckon with: What are we meant to do with the time we have?Source: Netflix
