The musical follows the story of Jon, as he works at a New York City diner in 1990, “while writing what he hopes will be the next great American musical.” It shows the pressure on Jon in all areas — his girlfriend Susan, “who dreams of an artistic life beyond New York City,” and his friend Michael, “who has moved on from his dream to a life of financial security; amidst an artistic community being ravaged by the AIDS epidemic. 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?” reads a logline from Netflix.

Also debuting on Monday is “30/90” — the first single from the film, performed by Garfield. A full soundtrack from the film is due out on Nov. 12 from Sony Music Masterworks. Listen to it below.

Larson, tragically, never got to see Rent become a smash success. He died suddenly of an aortic aneurysm on Jan. 25, 1996, the day the musical was to have its first Off-Broadway preview performance, at just 35 years old.

Tick, Tick…Boom! comes to theaters Nov. 12, and then to Netflix on Nov. 19. Watch the new trailer above.
