Andrew Garfield Is the King of Romance in "Tick, Tick... Boom!" Deleted Scene
Netflix has finally released the "Tick, Tick... Boom!" deleted scene that fans have been waiting for. The movie's soundtrack features a bonus track of stars Andrew Garfield and Alexandra Shipp singing the romantic and sexy duet "Green Green Dress." But the two did not perform it in the film. Instead, Joshua Henry sang a short version with an R&B-inspired arrangement. Fans were desperate for Netflix and director Lin-Manuel Miranda to release the original "Green Green Dress" scene featuring Garfield and Shipp, and on March 17, they finally gave in.
In the movie, Garfield stars as Jonathan Larson, the real-life composer best known for writing "Rent." "Tick, Tick... Boom!" was his autobiographical one-man show. After Larson's tragic and sudden death, friends adapted "Tick, Tick... Boom!" into something more akin to a traditional musical, and Miranda aspired to turn it into a film. Shipp plays Larson's girlfriend, Susan. The movie also stars Robin de Jesus and Vanessa Hudgens.
"Tick, Tick... Boom!" has had a great award season and is nominated for two Oscars: best actor for Garfield, and best film editing. It's also built itself a vocal fan base, who clamored not just for this deleted scene, but also for Netflix to release the songs in the movie from Larson's unproduced musical, "Superbia," which weren't included on the original soundtrack. They got their wish on Feb. 4, which would have been Larson's 62nd birthday.
