Description

Inspired by Puccini’s opera La Boheme, Rent is the groundbreaking story of a group of friends struggling to survive in the Lower East Side of the 1990s. Under the shadow of relationships, drugs and the AIDS crisis, this Pulitzer Prize-winning musical directed by acclaimed Northwestern faculty member Dominic Missimi offers a heartrending and ultimately hopeful look at love and friendship in the face of illness.
