Northern Kentucky University
Stauss Theatre [Highland Heights]
This autobiographical musical by Jonathan Larson (RENT), follows Jon, an aspiring musical-theater composer who wonders if it’s time to settle for a second-choice life. Exhilarating, funny, and moving, TICK, TICK… BOOM! will speak to anyone who’s ever gotten lost on the way to finding their dreams. Set in 1990, this compelling story of sacrifice and personal discovery is presented as a rock musical.
SONGS FOR A NEW WORLD
Tony Award-winner, Jason Robert Brown, transports audiences from the deck of a 1492 Spanish sailing ship to a ledge, 57 stories above Fifth Avenue, to meet a startling array of characters. With a small, powerhouse cast and a driving, exquisitely crafted score that runs the gamut of today’s popular music, SONGS FOR A NEW WORLD is about the way we regroup and figure out how to survive in a new set of circumstances – a new world – even against seemingly overwhelming odds.
