Brave in the face of danger; loving when confronted by hate and hopeful against all odds, RENT is one of the most uplifting and beloved musicals ever.
This ground-breaking production follows a group of artists struggling and striving to follow their dreams in New York City against a backdrop of poverty, looming gentrification and the AIDS crisis of the 1990s.
A pop-culture phenomenon, this Pulitzer Prize winner is packed with high-energy musical numbers, including revered hits Seasons of Love, Take Me or Leave Me and La Vie Bohème.
RENT endures in the grand tradition of rock musicals: its heart is bigger than its problems; its music moves under your skin and moves you.” – The Guardian
