In 1996, an original rock musical by a little-known composer opened on Broadway …
and forever changed the landscape of American 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 touring production. A re-imagining
of Puccini’s La Bohème, RENT follows an unforgettable year in the lives of seven
artists struggling to follow their dreams without selling out. 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
