WhatsOnStage has a first listen to the new production of Jonathan Larson's Tick, Tick…Boom!, which opens at the Bridge House Theatre at the end of September.

The RENT creator worked on the piece from 1990 but it was left unfinished when he died in 1996, before being completed by playwright David Auburn.

The musical is set in 1990 New York and follows Jon, a young theatre composer who works as waiter while writing a musical. It had its London premiere at the Menier Chocolate Factory in 2005, starring Neil Patrick Harris, Tee Jaye and Cassidy Janson.

It was recently announced that a Netflix-produced film version of the show will be created, with direction by Lin-Manuel Miranda.

Tick, Tick…Boom! runs from 30 September to 27 October – the production will star Georgie Ashford, James Hume and Alex Lodge and is directed by Guy Retallack.
