Tick, Tick…Boom! Trailer: Lin-Manuel Miranda to Make Directorial Debut for Netflix


With In the Heights arriving in theatres and on HBO Max this past weekend, Netflix recently dropped the first trailer for their own upcoming Lin-Manuel Miranda musical film Tick, Tick…Boom!. The movie will mark Miranda’s feature directorial debut although it is not based on one of his own musicals but rather the semi-autobiographical production of the same name by Jonathan Larson (Rent). Andrew Garfield plays Larson, who is dealing with a mid-life crisis as he is about to turn 30, still waiting tables while pursuing a career in theatre and worrying that he will never make his mark on the world. With a supporting cast that includes Vanessa Hudgens, Alexandra Shipp, Robin de Jesús, Joshua Henry, Judith Light and Bradley Whitford, Tick, Tick…Boom! arrives on Netflix sometime this fall. Check out the first trailer below and see what you think.
