tick, tick...BOOM! ★★★★½

“Years are getting shorter
Lines on your face are getting longer
Feel like you're treading water
But the riptide's getting stronger..”

a musical full of life and feeling—Andrew Garfield shines bright as he channels all of the urgent, obsessive joy & discontent of a young artist trying to make art with a keen awareness that all our time is limited. it’s a loving and bittersweet tribute made crushing by the fact of just how limited Larsen’s time was. 

the couple of scenes featuring Stephen Sondheim in the story as an encouraging mentor feel all the more poignant now, in light of his passing today; what a legacy he leaves behind ❤️
