The breakthrough musical of the 1990s, Rent recreates Puccini’s La Bohème in the lower East Side of New York City. The Bohemian artists and poets of the original are now contemporary figures working on the fringes of the art world, finding humor, conflict and love in an environment struggling under the specter of AIDS.
With the rights to Rent released about a year and a half ago, this is the first time that CCM is producing the show that won four Tony Awards and the Pulitzer Prize for Drama.
