THEATER | "Tick, Tick ... BOOM!" 

Before Jonathan Larson wrote "Rent," he wrote and performed a "rock monologue" called "Tick, Tick ... BOOM!" first presented Off-Off Broadway in 1990. The huge success of "Rent" came soon afterward, but Larson never lived to see it. Ironically, "Tick, Tick ... BOOM!" dramatizes Larson's own apprehensions about turning 30 with little to show for it artistically or professionally — the ticking sound he hears is time running out. That knowledge adds to the poignancy of this piece, which was revised as a three-character musical in 2001 and has been a staple of smaller theaters ever since. OFC Creations gives it a try this weekend with three local musical-theater stalwarts in the leads: Carl Del Buono as Jon(athan), Alec Powell as his best friend Michael, and Brynn (Lucas) Tyszka as his girlfriend Susan.

OFC Creations presents "Tick, Tick ... BOOM!" Friday, August 1, and Saturday, August 2, at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, August 3, at 2 p.m. at RAPA, 727 East Main Street. $15-$20. 325-3366; rapatheatre.org.
