Spring Production 2011 - "RENT" by Jonathan Larson




RENT is a rock opera based on Giacomo Puccini's La Boheme. It tells the story of a group of impoverished young artists and musicians struggling to survive and be creative in New York's Lower East Side. Although showing the tragic consequences of the bohemian lifestyle of some of its characters, the story also carries a strong message of hope, compassion and inclusiveness.
