Loosely based on Puccini’s classic opera, La Bohème, RENT earned both the Pulitzer Prize for
Drama and a Tony Award for best play in 1996. With song favorites such as the catchy “Seasons
of Love” and “No Day But Today,” Jonathan Larson succeeded in "bring[ing] musical theatre
to the MTV generation." The piece achieves much more, however, in humanely depicting the
fragility and hope of urban youth in New York City during the gritty 1990s.
Includes adult themes.
