Why See Rent?
RENT hits the 5th Avenue Theatre in Seattle, WA, Closed August 19, 2012
An all-new staging of Jonathan Larson's Rent, featuring a talented cast of young, local performers.
This musical is based on Puccini's opera La Boheme, which portrays a group of poverty-stricken artists living unconventional (or "Bohemian") lives in the attics of 19th-Century Paris; the opera's young lovers are tragically separated when one dies of the ubiquitous Victorian plague, tuberculosis. Rent, on the other hand, is set in late 20th Century New York; its characters are young filmmakers, songwriters, street musicians, and performance artists who live in an industrial loft. They struggle with romantic relationships, creative blocks, rent payments, drug addiction, and with the new plague called AIDS.
Opening night: 1 August 2012
Not suitable for children under 13 years old.
