The previous teaser for Lin-Manuel Miranda and Steven Levenson‘s Tick, Tick…BOOM! (Netflix, 11.12), about the struggle of Rent creator Jonathan Larson to get up and over in the late ’80s, was a wee bit scary. But this trailer is encouraging. It’s certainly more engaging.
It seems to suggest, by the way, that Larson was something other than a cisgendered hetero**, as it highlights two or three heart-to-heart advice discussions between guys (Joshua Henry in particular).
** I’ve always read that Larson was straight, which, I recognize, is not a good thing in and of itself. “Straight” is almost as bad as “older straight white guy”.
