Rent is the award-winning rock musical by Jonathan Larsen that played for 12 years on Broadway.  Based on Puccini’s opera La Bohème, Rent tells the story of a group of impoverished young artists and musicians struggling to survive and create their works in New York’s Lower East Side in the thriving days of Bohemian Alphabet City, under the shadow of HIV/AIDS.  Rent will be accompanied by a live professional band.
