One day after Jon M. Chu’s adaptation of Lin-Manuel Miranda’s In the Heights kicked off the Tribeca Film Festival, Netflix has dropped the teaser trailer for Miranda’s feature-length directorial debut, Tick, Tick…BOOM!. The film, an adaptation of Rent creator Jonathan Larson’s autobiographical play, will hit the streaming service in the fall. Andrew Garfield stars as Jon, a theater composer who’s waiting tables at a New York City diner in 1990 while writing what he hopes will be the next great American musical.

According to Netflix: “Days before he’s due to showcase his work in a make-or-break performance, Jon is feeling the pressure from everywhere: from his girlfriend Susan, who dreams of an artistic life beyond New York City; from his friend Michael, who has moved on from his dream to a life of financial security; amidst an artistic community being ravaged by the AIDS epidemic. With the clock ticking, Jon is at a crossroads and faces the question everyone must reckon with: What are we meant to do with the time we have?”

Tick, Tick…BOOM! also stars Alexandra Shipp, Robin de Jesús, Joshua Henry, MJ Rodriguez, Bradley Whitford, Tariq Trotter, Judith Light, and Vanessa Hudgens. The film is written by Tony winner Steven Levenson and produced by Brian Grazer and Ron Howard for Imagine Entertainment, Julie Oh, and Lin-Manuel Miranda.

Netflix will release Tick, Tick…BOOM! in the fall.
