RENT to play at Secret Theatre from Sept. 19 – Oct. 6 2019

Performing September 19 – October 6 2019

Welcome to Rent, the Pulitzer and Tony Award-winning musical that shaped a generation. With its premiere in 1996, this production became a pop culture powerhouse of urban life, rock music, and a story that all ages can relate to.

“Based loosely on Puccini’s La Boheme, Jonathan Larson’s 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, under the shadow of HIV/AIDS. The physical and emotional complications of the disease pervade the lives of Roger, Mimi, Tom and Angel. Maureen deals with her chronic infidelity through performance art; her partner, Joanne, wonders if their relationship is worth the trouble. Benny has sold out his Bohemian ideals in exchange for a hefty income and is on the outs with his former friends. Mark, an aspiring filmmaker, feels like an outsider to life in general. How these young bohemians negotiate their dreams, loves and conflicts provides the narrative thread to this groundbreaking musical.”
