Vanessa Hudgens Is Starring in Another Musical: 'tick, tick... BOOM!'

We love seeing Vanessa Hudgens in musicals and we’re so excited that she just added another one to her movie slate!

The 30-year-old actress is joining Andrew Garfield and the newly announced Alexandra Shipp and Robin de Jesus in the cast of the upcoming movie tick, tick… BOOM!

The musical, which was an off-Broadway show written by the late Jonathan Larson, will be adapted into a movie for Netflix. Lin-Manuel Miranda is making his directorial debut with the movie, which will have a screenplay by Dear Evan Hansen‘s Steven Levenson.

This will mark Vanessa‘s second Larson musical as she appeared in Rent Live last year and she also did the stage version at the Hollywood Bowl. Robin performed in Rent on Broadway!

The musical “will follow Jon (Garfield), an aspiring theater composer who waits tables in New York City while writing Superbia, which he hopes will be the great American musical that will finally give him his big career break. The young man is feeling pressure from his girlfriend Susan (Shipp), who is tired of continuing to put her life on hold for Jon’s career aspiration. Meanwhile, Jon’s best friend and roommate Michael has given up on his creative dream and has taken a high paying advertising job on Madison Avenue and is preparing to move out. As Jon approaches his 30th birthday, he is overcome with anxiety, wondering if his own impossible dream is worth the cost,” according to Deadline.
