Boho Days: The Wider Works of Jonathan Larson
J. Collis, author
Covering Larson’s work from student cabarets at Adelphi University through RENT’s creative process, “Boho Days” tells the story of a young composer on the edge of a rapidly changing New York theatre scene. Based on extensive archival research and interviews with over 60 of Larson’s associates and collaborators, Collis’ book features discussion and analysis of major works such as Superbia, tick, tick… BOOM!, J.P. Morgan Saves the Nation, and RENT. “Boho Days” also addresses a number of lesser-known Larson works including his educational theatre compositions, a collaboration with National Lampoon, and the children’s video Away We Go!
