Based loosely on Puccini’s La Boheme, Jonathan Larson’s Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize-winning RENT follows a year in the life of a diverse group of impoverished young artists and musicians struggling to survive and create in New York’s Lower East Side, dealing with poverty, addiction, infidelity, and living under the shadow of HIV/AIDS. Despite the heavy circumstances, this group of friends bands together to choose love over fear and live their lives without regret. This groundbreaking musical has been inspiring audiences for over a quarter century.
