Rent

In 1996, an original rock musical by a little-known composer opened on Broadway and forever changed the landscape of musical theatre. Two decades later, Jonathan Larson`s RENT continues to speak loudly and defiantly to audiences across generations and all over the world. And now, this Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning masterpiece returns to the stage in a vibrant 20th anniversary production under the direction of Byron Bure.

A re-imagining of Puccini`s La Boheme, RENT follows an unforgettable year in the lives of seven artists struggling to follow their dreams without selling out. The show features favourites such as "Seasons of Love", "Take Me or Leave Me" and "La Vie Boheme."

With its inspiring message of joy and hope in the face of fear, this timeless celebration of friendship and creativity reminds us to measure our lives with the only thing that truly matters love.
