tick, tick… BOOM!: Jonathan Larson’s warm up to Rent

Written by Jonathan Larson of Rent fame, the story follows a playwright questioning his choice to be in theater. The story is somewhat autobiographical, setting Rent to be a more romantic and endearing tribute to the struggles of young artists.

In addition to designing the costumes I also collaborated with our technical director on set design. As a complete production design effort, one of my favorites of the 2005 Millbrook Playhouse season.
