Garfield has previously been nominated for both a Tony and Olivier Award for his appearances in the plays Death of a Salesman and Angels in America on Broadway and in London respectively.

Following his role in the movie adaptation of Jonathan Larson’s musical, Garfield has shared ambitions of taking up a role in a Stephen Sondheim classic.

He told Variety at the SAG Awards this week of starring in a Broadway musical: “I would love to. I’d love to do Georges Seurat in Sunday in the Park with George.

“That would be so much fun.”

He added of the show’s late composer, Sondheim: “We need him, we miss him.”

You can watch Garfield in tick, tick… BOOM! on Netflix now.

Directed by Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda, the film stars Garfield as Jon alongside a stellar cast including Vanessa Hudgens, Alexandra Shipp, Robin de Jesus, Joshua Henry, Mj Rodriguez and Judith Light – plus more Broadway cameos than you can count.

The semi-autobiographical story from RENT composer Jonathan Larson follows an aspiring musical theatre composer working as a waiter while attempting to get his work staged.
