The production is an adaptation of Jonathan Larson’s autobiographical musical, who revolutionized theater by creating the play Rent.
Garfield plays Jon, a young theatrical composer who is amiable in a New York restaurant in 1990, as he writes what he hopes will be America’s next great musical. A few days before presenting his work in a decisive performance, Jon feels the pressure from everywhere: from his girlfriend Susan (Alexandra Shipp), who dreams of an artistic life beyond New York; of his friend Michael (Robin de Jesús), who gave up his dream for a life of financial security; in the midst of an artistic community ravaged by the AIDS epidemic. As time goes by, Jon is at a crossroads and is faced with the question everyone must ask: What to do with the time we have? “
Steven Levenson signs the screenplay.
Joshua Henry, Mj Rodriguez, Bradley Whitford, Tariq Trotter, Vanessa Hudgens and Judith Light complete the cast.
