Tick, Tick ...BOOM!
Book and Lyrics by Jonathan Larson
Music by Jonathan Larson
November 30 – December 9
A musical look at the courage it takes to follow your dreams, TICK, TICK... BOOM! is Jonathan Larson's autobiographical tale of a young composer on the brink of turning 30 and falling into oblivion. His girlfriend wants to get married and move out of the city, his best friend is making big bucks on Madison Avenue, and yet Jon is still waiting on tables and trying to write the great American musical. Set in 1990, this compelling story of personal discovery is presented as a rock musical filled with instantly appealing melodies and a unique blend of musical theatre styles. Written by Jonathan Larson, TICK, TICK... BOOM! takes you on the playwright/composer's journey that led to the Broadway blockbuster, RENT.
TICK, TICK… BOOM! performs November 30 – December 9, 2012. All shows at Grey Box Theatre, 3595 Butler St., Lawrenceville. Fri.-Sat., 8 p.m.; Sun., 2 p.m. $20 / $15 with student ID.

sustenance by James Roday
12 Peers Theater is very proud to announce a pair of Pittsburgh Premiere one act plays. Talk About The Passion, written by UK Playwright Graham Farrow, presents the perils of a society fascinated by serial killers and fame. sustenance, written by James Roday, Red Dog Squadron Co-Artistic Director, and Shawn Spencer on USA’s Psych, is an East Coast Premiere also centered on serial killers, with a few zombies added for good measure.

While Carroway exorcises the ghosts of the death of his child and searches for an answer to all the moral decay that threatens to overwhelm him, Evelyn reveals her own ugly, secretive past. It is a past which has direct consequences for Carroway and will lead to him making life-changing decisions to avenge his son.
Talk about the Passion is an age-old morality tale about the search for revenge and redemption in a society where fame, money and personal choice are the new Gods.
