For this episode we’re talking about the movie tick, tick… BOOM! It is based on a stage musical of the same name, written by Jonathan Larsen. In the movie, directed by Lin Manuel-Miranda, Andrew Garfield plays Larsen as he attempts to break into the musical theater industry. 

Garfield was nominated for an Academy Award for his performance in the film, but when ATMI producers Madison Knutson and Daisy Carter got together to talk about tick, tick… BOOM! it was prior to the ceremony where Garfield did not win the award.

Hosted by Nico Coltrane.
