Don't miss this great show!
Book and Music & Lyrics By Jonathan Larson
RENT will close this year's City Theater season. This revolutionary rock musical by Jonathan Larson, is an imaginative retelling of the classic Puccini Opera, La Boheme. This is an unforgettable and timeless story of a "community (of starving artists), who are celebrating life in the face of death and aids at the turn of the century."
Set in the East Village of New York City, RENT is about falling in love, finding your voice and living for today. Winner of the Tony Award for Best Musical and the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, RENT has become a pop cultural phenomenon with songs that rock and a story that resonates with audiences of all ages. RENT follows a year in the life of a group of impoverished young artists and musicians struggling to survive and create in New York's Lower East Side. How these young bohemians negotiate their dreams, loves, and conflicts provides the narrative thread to this groundbreaking musical. This is theatre at its best -- exuberant, passionate, and joyous.
Show dates are July 17th - Aug 2nd. Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 PM and Sundays at 2:00 PM. (Please note there is no performance Sun July 19.)
