RENT

Winner of the 1996 Pulitzer Prize for Drama; 1996 Tony Awards for Best Musical, Best Book of a Musical, and Best Original Score.

Directed by Harry Elam, Jr.

Based loosely on Puccini's opera "La Bohème," the rock musical Rent follows a year in the lives of seven friends living the disappearing Bohemian lifestyle in New York's East Village. AIDS functions in each characters' life as a forceful reminder of mortality, futility, and uncertainty, but also as an inspiration for strength through optimism, friendship, humor, and enthusiasm for embracing the day. Features musical numbers "One Song Glory," "La vie Boheme," and "Seasons of Love."

"...An exhilarating, landmark rock opera…[that] shimmers with hope for the future of the American musical.” --The New York Times, Ben Brantley.

Contains adult language and situations. Recommended for ages 14 and up. Please note that there will be no late seating for this production.
