About this show

Directed by Luke Sheppard (& Juliet, Spring Awakening)

Rent is a rock musical with music, lyrics, and book by Jonathan Larson and is loosely based on Giacomo Puccini’s opera La Bohème.

It tells the story of a group of impoverished young artists struggling to survive and create a life in Lower Manhattan’s East Village in the thriving days of Bohemian Alphabet City, under the shadow of HIV/AIDS.
