Approaching thirty, Johnny is a struggling theatre composer, waiting tables at the local diner and watching his New York life tick by. His best friend is making corporate money and his girlfriend wants to leave the city, but he just can’t give up on his stagnating dream of writing the next great American musical.
This semi-autobiographical musical explores Jonathan Larson’s life before ‘Rent’, both the culture and pressures that culminated in his Tony Award winning legacy, and brings a fresh performance following the 2021 hit film.
