Tonight we're taking over 100 theatregoers to see Rent in Concert at Hackney Empire, followed by a post-show Q&A with the cast, which includes Kerry Ellis and Superstar runner-up Rory Taylor.

Set in the East Village of New York City, Rent is about falling in love, finding your voice and living for today. Winner of the Tony Award for Best Musical and the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, the show is based loosely on Puccini's La Boheme, and follows a year in the life of a group of friends struggling to make it in the big city under the shadow of HIV/AIDS.

Joining Kerry Ellis (Mimi) and Rory Taylor (Roger) in this 20th anniversary staging of Jonathan Larson's hit musical are Nikki Davis-Jones (Maureen), Paul Ayres (Mark), Leon Lopez (Collins), Ian Stroughair (Angel), Jemma Alexander (Joanne) and Kenny Thompson (Benny). The ensemble includes Joel Harper-Jackson.
