Rent in Broadway RENT
Players by the Sea
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, Rent has become a pop culture phenomenon since its 1996 Broadway debut, with songs that rock and a story that resonates with audiences of all ages. Loosely based on Puccini's La Boheme, the show follows a year in the life of a group of impoverished young artists and musicians struggling to survive and create on New York's Lower East Side. The physical and emotional complications of HIV/AIDS pervade the lives of Roger, Mimi, Tom and Angel. Mark, an aspiring filmmaker, feels like an observer to his own life. His flirtatious ex-girlfriend Maureen makes performance art, while her new partner, Joanne, wonders if their relationship is worth the trouble. Benny has sold out his ideals for a rich wife and is on the outs with his former friends. How these young bohemians negotiate their dreams, loves, and conflicts provides the narrative thread to this ground-breaking musical. This is exuberant, passionate, and joyous theatre for young and old.
