Netflix has shared a deleted scene and song from its recent hit tick, tick… BOOM! movie adaptation.
Written by RENT composer Jonathan Larson, the semi-autobiographical story follows an aspiring composer called Jon who is working as a waiter while attempting to break into musical theatre.
It was brought to the screen last year with Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda directing and Andrew Garfield in the lead role.
But not every part of Larson’s original work made it to the screen, with the song Green Green Dress and an accompanying scene cut out – until now.
Netflix has shared the clip, featuring Garfield and co-star Alexandra Shipp which you can watch below…
Speaking about cutting the scene, Miranda described it as a “painful decision” that was made to “make the movie better” in order to “get to the central questions faster”.
“I’m really, really glad it’s being released,” he added.
Garfield shared: “Lin was very torn about whether we could justify keeping in ‘Green Green Dress’ in its original form or otherwise. Rehearsing the song was a bear, it was a lot
“And Ryan Heffington, the genius choreographer, is a task master and he pushes you beyond what you think you can do and I loved working on this sequence. It was so much fun, so creative, and there were so many different permutations and Alex is such an incredible collaborator in that way Man, it was just the best time.
Shipp added: “Green Green Dress was one of the hardest dance numbers I think I’ve ever learned.”
Alongside Garfield and Shipp, the film stars Vanessa Hudgens, Alexandra Shipp,, Robin de Jesus, Joshua Henry, Mj Rodriguez and Judith Light – plus more Broadway cameos than you can count.
Tick, Tick… Boom! is streaming now on Netflix.
