Interview with Half Pint Theatre – Producers of ‘Tick Tick Boom’

21 Feb

Before writer/composer Jonathan Larson made good on his dream of penning a smash Broadway hit, as he did with Rent, he questioned said dream in Tick Tick Boom. This modest musical about holding on to one’s ambitions in spite of the realities of life is one that hits close to home for the members of Half Pint Theatre. This fresh Toronto based company was founded by four talented and emerging musical theatre performers who, instead of waiting for their ship to come in, have decided to build their own damn ship and are self-producing Larson’s semi-autobiographical work (opening in two days at Buddies in Bad Times). Here are Esther Vallins, Alanna Stone, and Tara Litvak – three of the four founding members – with the story of their company so far and their own personal experiences with hitting the metaphorical wall.
