Set in the East Village of New York City, the iconic musical Rent is about falling in love, finding your voice and living for today. It has become a pop cultural phenomenon with songs that rock and a story that resonates with audiences of all ages. Jonathan Larson’s Rent follows a year in the life of a group of impoverished young artists struggling to survive at the end of the millennium. How these young bohemians negotiate their dreams, loves and conflicts provides the narrative thread to this ground breaking musical. This is theatre at its best – exuberant, passionate and joyous – so don’t miss the musical sensation that won the Tony Award for best musical, ran for twelve years on Broadway and would go on to inspire the smash hit musical Hamilton.
This show is produced by Bite My Thumb, a community arts group.
