Tick, Tick… Boom! marks Hamilton creator Lin Manuel Miranda’s directorial debut, working from a script penned by Dear Evan Hansen’s Steven Levenson.

The musical explores Larson’s years before penning the hit show Rent, which debuted off-Broadway in 1996.

Sadly, Larson would not witness the blockbuster success of the show. 

He died unexpectedly on the morning of Rent’s first performance after suffering an aortic dissection believed to have been caused by undiagnosed Marfan syndrome.
