Based loosely on Puccini's La Boheme, Jonathan Larson's Rent follows a year in the life of a group of impoverished young artists and musicians struggling to survive and create in New York's Lower East Side, under the shadow of HIV/AIDS. “ArtsCentric’s Rent will be highly immersive”, says Kevin S. McAllister. “It will honor the shows beloved characters and their friendships and will also define how humanity can make the most of the here and now while also pausing to relish in our most glorious life’s moments.
Rent contains mature thematic material involving drug use, sexuality and sex acts (no nudity), illness/death and some language. Parental discretion is advised. Recommended for teens and adults.
