The groundbreaking and iconic Pulitzer Prize-winning musical that shaped a generation - and taught us all to measure our life in love.

Based loosely on Puccini's La Boheme, Jonathan Larson's 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. An exuberant, passionate, and joyous story about falling in love, finding your voice, and living for today.
