Press reviews for the premiere of tick, tick... BOOM!

„‚tick, tick... BOOM!‘  by Jonathan Larson brilliantly rocks the Wiener Volksoper back to the 90s.“ (Kurier, October 30, 2023)

„Semotan does a great job, the Viennese actor energetically moves around, beside, and atop a multifunctional hot dog stand (Stage: Agnes Hasun), supported and pitied by Susan (Juliette Khalil) and Michael (Oliver Liebl).“ (Der Standard, October 30, 2023)

„Director Frederic Buhr has staged it extremely precisely; the performers are world-class. Jakob Semotan as the fabulous John, Juliette Khalil as the enchanting Susan, and Oliver Liebl as Michael give their all. Standing ovations!“ (Kurier, October 30, 2023)

„With the musical ‚Tick, Tick... Boom!‘, the Volksoper takes another step towards becoming a multi-generational house.“ (Der Standard, October 30, 2023)

„Life is not over at 30: Jakob Semotan, Juliette Khalil and Oliver Liebl sing their way right into the hearts of the audience.“ (Falter, November 1, 2023)

„The Volksoper puts on a rock musical and sweeps the audience off its feet. Boom!“ (Falter, November 1, 2023)

„This production has humor, drive, and tragedy. Above all, it features many excellent songs (...) and a strong retro flair. It's fantastic how Christian Frank (conductor), Felix Reischl, Marlene Lacherstorfer, and Mario Stübler, from the stage, bring it all to life with guitar, bass, keyboard, and dynamically driving drums.“ (Kurier, October 30, 2023)
