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.
