Trailer Debut: TICK, TICK… BOOM!  Netflix Musical Directed by Lin-Manuel MirandaNetflix

What are we meant to do with the time we have here on earth?

That is the question Jon, a young theater composer is stuck with while he deals with the pressures we all experience when we are called by God to pursue our purpose.

Film synopsis:

Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award winner Lin-Manuel Miranda makes his feature directorial debut. The film is 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.

Starring Andrew Garfield, Alexandra Shipp, Robin de Jesús, Joshua Henry, MJ Rodriguez, Bradley Whitford, Tariq Trotter, with Emmy and Tony Award winner Judith Light, and Vanessa Hudgens. The movie premieres on Netflix and select theaters this fall.
