‘Tick, tick…BOOM!’ musical on stage at the Phoenix Theater in Indianapolis – WISH-TV | Indianapolis News | Indiana Weather forecast

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — They’re rising stars who have starred in dozens of productions in Indianapolis and across the country, and now they’re tackling a musical called “Tick, Tick…Boom!”

It runs at the Phoenix Theater until October 30. Ticket prices start at $15.

Patrick Dinnsen, who plays Jon, and Gabriela Gomez, who plays Susan, joined us Friday on “Life.Style.Live!” to share what you can expect from the show.

“Tick, tick…BOOM!” is from Jonathan Larson, the creator of “Rent”. The production features two native Hoosiers now performing in New York, returning home to star in this show (they are also engaged). Tick, tick…BOOM! tells the story of an aspiring composer named Jon, who lives in New York in 1990. Jon fears he made the wrong career choice to be part of the performing arts; the audience follows Jon’s journey as he decides what to do with his time. The musical has been produced several times off-Broadway and has had a Netflix film adaptation directed by Lin-Manuel Miranda and starring Andrew Garfield.

The upcoming Phoenix Theater production will be directed by Emily Ristine Holloway and will star Eddie Dean as Michael, Gabriela Gomez as Susan and Patrick Dinnsen as Jon. The three rising stars have starred in dozens of productions in Indianapolis and across the country.

The Phoenix Theater is a 39-year-old non-profit theater company that focuses on producing new and contemporary theater. We are always different, always unique.
