Vanessa Hudgens, Lin-Manuel Miranda & Andrew Garfield on SPIN

SPIN's Sarina Bellissimo caught up with the cast of Netflix's Tick, Tick... Boom! for a chat this week.

She spoke to Vanessa Hudgens, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Andrew Garfield and more.

Before we get to the interviews, you might be wondering what the movie is all about.

Well, it's Lin-Manuel Miranda's directorial debut, and it's an adaptation of the autobiographical musical by Jonathan Larson.

He revolutionised theater as the creator of Rent.

The film follows Jon (Andrew Garfield), a young theater composer who’s waiting tables at a New York City diner in 1990.

All while writing what he hopes will be the next great American musical.

Days before he’s due to showcase his work in a make-or-break performance, Jon is feeling the pressure from everywhere.

With the clock ticking, Jon is at a crossroads and faces the question everyone must reckon with:

'What are we meant to do with the time we have?'
