Founded by actor Kendal Murray (Nickelodeon’s Sam and Cat;  The Goldbergs;  Parenthood), the touring theatre troupe Kendal Murray Presents has launched, and their only show in El Paso is taking place June 25th, 2016.  

This is the troupe’s only performance in El Paso.  The show, tick tick Boom! is the autobiographical tale of RENT creator, Jonathan Larson.  Larson originally performed the show as a monologue.  After his untimely death, David Auburn and Stephen Oremus (WICKED, AVENUE Q) reworked the show to expand beyond the single voice and create a world of characters around the central protagonist, Jon.

Jon is joined by Susan, his long term girlfriend, and Michael, his best friend since childhood, as well as a host of other characters, including Karessa, the personification of temptation; Rosa, his agent;  his doting parents;  and familiars from the New York backdrop that sets the scene for his day to day life. 

On the eve of his 30th birthday Jon faces his concerns about aging, and his lack of achievement, Michael has a great job in marketing, earning a steady salary but is ultimately unfulfilled, and Susan is ready to settle down but demands for this not to be seen as just “settling”. 

As “Happy Birthday” dawns, Jon relives the recent events that have lead to this night, the decisions he has made, the wrong(?) turns and the people who have played their part;  everybody’s view is different, but who is right?
