Get a first look at the cast in action!

BroadwayWorld has a first look at the new cast of the RENT 25th Anniversary Farewell Non-Equity Tour, the Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning landmark rock musical written by Jonathan Larson.

Leading the cast is Cody Jenkins as "Mark Cohen," Coleman Cummings as "Roger Davis," Aiyana Smash as "Mimi Marquez," Shafiq Hicks as "Tom Collins," Javon King as "Angel Dumott Schunard," Lyndie Moe as "Maureen Johnson," Rayla Garske as "Joanne Jefferson," and Jarred Bedgood as "Benjamin Coffin III." The tour will also feature Jeremy Abram, Mathew Bautista, Lexi Greene, Jahir L. Hipps, Yz Jasa, Tommy Kaiser, Stephen Rochet Lopez, Christopher Montalvo, Charlotte Odusanya, Carlina Parker, Thomas Purvis, Analise Rios, Makenzie Rivera, and James Schoppe.

For a quarter of a century, Jonathan Larson's RENT has inspired us to choose love over fear and to live without regret. This Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize-winning phenomenon follows a year in the lives of a diverse group of artists and friends struggling to follow their dreams without selling out. It has become more than a musical - it's a cultural touchstone, a rite of passage and a source of joy and strength for millions. RENT has become a part of us forever.

Tours of RENT have crisscrossed the country almost continuously since 1996, with the latest tour alone playing 5 countries, 237 cities, and 1,005 performances. RENT received its world premiere off-Broadway at New York Theatre Workshop on February 13, 1996 to ecstatic reviews and transferred to Broadway on April 29, 1996. RENT won the 1996 Tony Award® for Best Musical as well as the Pulitzer Prize for Drama. The musical has been translated into every major language and has been performed in 27 countries across six continents.

Based on original direction by Michael Greif (Tony and Drama Desk Nominations, RENT), Evan Ensign re-stages the 25th Anniversary Tour. Original Broadway creatives Marlies Yearby (Choreography) and Angela Wendt (Costume Design) are joined by Jonathan Spencer (Lighting Design), Keith Caggiano (Sound Design), Dave Pepin (Music Supervisor), Owen Johnston (Associate Choreographer), and Matthew E. Maraffi (adapting original scenic design by Paul Clay) to make up the creative team for the tour. Casting for the tour is by Wojcik | Seay Casting.

Whether you've never seen RENT or have completely lost count, you can't miss it this time around - the 25th Anniversary "Farewell Season of Love" is your FINAL CHANCE to experience this celebrated touring production.
