An inspirational musical about falling in love, finding your voice, and living for today. Winner of the TONY Award for Best Musical and the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, RENT is a pop cultural phenomenon with songs that rock and a story that resonates with audiences.

Based loosely on Puccini's La Boheme, 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 at the end of the 20th century. How these young bohemians negotiate their dreams, loves, and conflicts provides the narrative thread to this groundbreaking musical.
