Jonathan Larson’s 90’s bohemian rock revelation explodes onto The Rep’s stage! Based on Puccini's La Boheme, 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. Often called the Hair for the next generation, RENT has been performed around the world in 25 languages, continuing its exuberant cry of “No day but today!” Winner of the Tony Award for Best Musical and the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, Rent has become a pop cultural phenomenon, with a score that defined a generation and changed the face of musical theatre in America.
