RENT weaves together a group of young, bohemian artists confronting poverty, ambition, disease, love, death and ultimately a celebration of life in the East Village of NYC.
The plot is loosely based on the opera LA BOHEME, as well as many events in the life of its struggling composer, Jonathan Larson. RENT revolutionized the American musical theatre when it opened in the 1990s and was later turned into a sucessful film and recently revived on Broadway. Don't miss UM Theatre's take on this iconic rock musical!
