Jonathan Larson s autobiographical musical of a success-starved artist, fast (and frustratedly) approaching his 30th birthday. It s the week of Jonathan s 30th Birthday. His girlfriend wants to get married and move out of the city - Tick... His best friend has bought a BMW and is moving uptown - Tick... and Jon s waiting tables, trying to write the great American musical, and feeling the pressure to choose between holding onto dreams or selling out for money - Boom! Jonathan Larson, who tragically died of an aortic aneurysm shortly before the opening of his huge smash hit Rent, first conceived of Tick, Tick...Boom! in 1990 as a one man musical monologue about a young composer on the brink of turning 30. David Auburn (who also wrote Proof) has taken Larson s multi-character musical monologue and turned it into a show for 3 actors portraying numerous characters.
The show is a modern love story told with humour - a quirky tale of boy meets girl... and then meets boy, with the ‘help’ of a visiting angel whose matchmaking efforts go awry. And yes, the main story is a gay love story. But as the reviews first time round were keen to point out this is a show for everyone, regardless of sexuality. It is a story of young love and everyone’s basic need for companionship, or even just a hug... whether it’s the girl who wants to be married, the trendy young clubber, the busy TV chef working anti social hours or the ambitious lawyer.

The Otehr Palace
This highly original and universal portrait of the American workday is told from the perspective of those that the world so often overlooks - the schoolteacher, the housewife, the fireman and the waitress amongst many - whose daily grind and aspirations reflect the truths of the people that make up a nation. Working employs a range of musical styles and genres from contributing composers, including five-time Grammy Award-winner James Taylor and Pulitzer Prize-winner Lin Manuel Miranda.
Working is the extraordinary genre-defining musical from Grammy and Academy Award-winner Stephen Schwartz (Wicked, Godspell) based on Studs Terkel's best-selling book of interviews with the American workforce: Working: People Talk About What They Do All Day and How They Feel About What They Do.
The musical begins with a young man in present-day San Francisco who finds an old diary in a junk shop... Through the journal we learn the story of Stu, a scared Midwestern kid who gets drafted in 1943, and who - like most guys - spends Basic Training wrestling with fears of whether he 'has what it takes' to make it in the Army. But unlike most guys, Stu also falls in love with a fellow Private, a handsome All-American guy named Mitch.. YANK...tells Stu's, Mitch's, and Artie's stories, as well as the stories of the other men in Charlie Company. It explores what it means to be a man, and what it is to fall in love and struggle to survive in a time and place where the odds are stacked against you.
