Photo Flash: First Look at RENT PARTY at the Crucible Studio
RENT PARTY by Cheryl Martin and Darren Pritchard, a 21st-century austerity Britain immersive show inspired by the 1920s Harlem Renaissance Rent Parties, opens tonight, 14 December, for a run through 23 December 2017 at the Crucible Studio. BroadwayWorld has a first look at the cast in action below!
Just as in 1920s Harlem, we invite you the audience to pay to come to a party in our flat, so that we can make this month's rent, and entertain you with all our artist friends, dancers, singers, musicians, poets, who will create a kaleidoscopic picture of what it means today to be young, gifted, black... and poor, and gay. Being broke never looked so good.
The show is preceded by workshops, which offer audiences an opportunity to learn the Rent Party hustle and the experience continues with a full party following the show.
