Jonathan Larson was a great example of the "overnight success" who had actually been laboring for years unnoticed in the musical theater business. tick, tick...BOOM! was the musical he was working on right before he wrote Rent -- it was set aside in favor of that more famous musical. A group of former friends and collaborators of Larson's gathered to collect the drafts of the play and create a final, finished version, and in 2001, tick, tick...BOOM! opened Off-Broadway. The show, along with this recording, have helped to document another example of his talent. The lyrics may not be particularly original, but the smart urban feel and engaging characters that helped make Rent a smash are there, as well as some really stellar music. Much was made of the tragedy of Larson's death when Rent was released, but this recording makes it even more evident the kind of work that he might have continued to do if his life was not ended so prematurely. ~ Stacia Proefrock
