“Everyone who ever has or ever will be anyone” will be ecstatic to know that “Sextet Montage” from Jonathan Larson’s unreleased production, Superbia, has been released in honor of Larson’s 62nd birthday!
“Sextet Montage” had never been released to the public before it was pulled for use in the Netflix screen adaptation of tick, tick… BOOM!. Fans had been clamoring for a full version of the song for a while, and the release has come just in time to honor the legacy of the late Larson — whose story is portrayed in this adaptation of his semiautobiographical play of the same name — on his special day.
Starring Andrew Garfield and directed by Lin-Manuel Miranda, Steven Levenson’s screen adaptation of Jonathan Larson’s semi-autobiographical play by the same name follows theater composer Jon (Garfield) who, on the cusp of his 30th birthday, is racing against the clock to achieve his dream of writing the next big American musical. As pressure grows and the clock ticks away, Jon faces challenges and tries to figure out what he should do with the limited time he feels he has left.
