Andrew has been busy promoting both ‘Tick, Tick… Boom!’ and ‘The Eyes of Tammy Faye’ recently. First up, he gave an interview to The New York Times accompanied by a new photoshoot which you can see in the gallery. He was also on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. You can see that below. And lastly, some new stills and BTS photos from ‘Tick, Tick… Boom!’ have also been added to the gallery.
Miranda saw Garfield in the 2018 Broadway production of “Angels in America” and thought he was “transcendent” in that show. “I just left thinking, ‘Oh, that guy can do anything,’” the director recalled. “I didn’t know if he could sing, but I just felt like he could do anything. So I cast him in my head probably a year before I talked to him about it.”
Miranda put Garfield through his paces, sending him to a vocal coach and ensuring that the actor would be able to play enough piano so the camera could pan from his fingers to his face throughout the film. But those are just the technical aspects of a performance that is impressively possessed: Garfield plays the passionate, frustrated Larson with enough zealous verve to power all the lights on Broadway.
