Book, music, and lyrics by Jonathan Larson
David Auburn, Script Consultant
Vocal Arrangements & Orchestrations by Stephen Oremus
Directed by Jonathan Silverstein
Musical direction by Scott Storr
The clock is ticking for Jonathan: one week to go and he will turn thirty. Will he continue to follow his dream of writing the great American musical for a new generation? Tick. Will he sell out like his best friend and get a real job? Tick. Will he leave the city with his girlfriend and start a family? Tick. A high energy, brilliant, funny musical made all the more poignant by Jonathan Larson’s death 6 years later and his posthumous Pulitzer and Tony awards for his hit musical, Rent.
