The 20th Anniversary tour of RENT comes to the capital region—and to the intimacy of Harris Center’s Stage One. RENT opened on Broadway in 1996, an original rock musical by a little-known composer; it won both a Pulitzer Prize and a Tony Award for Best Musical. RENT follows an unforgettable year in the lives of seven artists—a timeless celebration of friendship and creativity. “Indeed, this vigorous tale of a marginal band of artists in Manhattan’s East Village, a contemporary answer to La bohème, rushes forward on an electric current of emotion ... Sustained by a glittering, inventive score, the work finds a transfixing brightness in characters living in the shadow of AIDS.” (From original 1996 review, New York Times).
Note: RENT involves mature themes and therefore parental discretion is recommended for youth under the age of 13.Read Playbill
