Music, Lyrics, and Book by Jonathan Larson
Directed by Amanda Wansa Morgan

1996 Tony Award for Best Musical and Pulitzer-Prize Winner for Drama

Created in the 1990’s, the iconic rock musical Rent has sustained its immediacy and theatrical power for over twenty-five years. The story offers an intimate encounter with a diverse group of young artists living in the lower east side of New York as we follow their daily struggles to make ends meet during the siege of HIV AIDS. Their relationships remind us of the power of a supportive community, and most of all, the hope and joy that love offers in the midst of loss and despair.
