‘Andrew’ information section update

Since nothing of note is going on right now, I decided to finish the ‘Andrew’ section of the site. Go check it out to read about Andrew, his career, both in movies/TV and theatre (every project has it’s own page, so you have all the information about a project that interests you in one place) and fun facts. Hope you will enjoy it and maybe find out some things you didn’t know before.

Andrew officially cast in ‘Tick, Tick… Boom!’

As reported previously, Andrew was up for a role in Lin Manuel Miranda’s ‘Tick, Tick… Boom!’. Variety now reports that Andrew has been officially cast.

Andrew Garfield will star in Lin-Manuel Miranda’s “Tick, Tick… Boom!” for Netflix.

Variety first reported in June that Netflix had won the movie rights to “Tick, Tick … Boom!” with “Hamilton” creator Miranda attached to direct and Garfield the top choice to star. His deal was announced on Wednesday.

“Dear Evan Hansen” writer Steven Levenson is adapting the script based on the original stage show by late “Rent” creator Jonathan Larson. Brian Grazer, Ron Howard and Julie Oh of Imagine Entertainment are producing along with Miranda. Julie Larson and Levenson are executive producing.

“Tick, Tick … Boom!” is set in 1990 and tells the story of an aspiring theater composer who is waiting tables in New York City while writing “Superbia,” which he hopes will be the next great American musical and finally give him his big break. As he approaches his 30th birthday, he is overcome with anxiety, wondering if his dream is worth the cost.
