Press Release

Rent is a 90’s rock musical loosely based on Giacomo Puccini’s opera La Boheme. This upbeat show follows the lives of a group of struggling artists in Manhattan’s East Village living in the shadow of the HIV/AIDS epidemic. The individual stories of love, loss, and passion intertwine to create a thought-provoking musical that promotes the ideal of living life to its fullest.
