Hailed as "the best musical of this century" by Ben Brantley of The New York Times and "the funniest musical of all time" by Entertainment Weekly, The Book of Mormon won nine Tony Awards -- including Best Musical -- in its first year on Broadway. Written by South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone along with Robert Lopez, the Tony-winning co-creator of Avenue Q, this musical comedy is a show that The Daily Show's Jon Stewart has called "a crowning achievement. So good it makes me angry." Now, the national touring production returns to Boston. Learn More

I've been to one other production at the Footlight Club that was sub-par so I was not sure what I was going to witness. I was very happily surprised to see an amazing cast with real lung power that drove this local production beyond my expectations. This show is off-broadway caliber. Big kudos to the cast, director and team behind the scenes. Except for the sound folks...you missed turning characters' mics on during pivotal songs. Luckily I was close to the stage so I didn't miss a note, not so sure about the people in the back.
Quotes & Highlights
- The Broadway production of Rent ran for 5,123 performances from 1996 to 2008 and collected four Tony Awards including Best Musical, Best Book of a Musical and Best Original Score.
Rent is a rock opera that tells the story of one year in the life of a group of bohemians struggling in modern day East Village New York. The story centers around Mark and Roger, two roommates. While a former tragedy has made Roger numb to life, Mark tries to capture it through his attempts to make a film. In the year that follows, the group deals with love, loss, AIDS, and modern day life in one truly powerful story.
Featured in the cast are: Todd Sandstrom, Sara Jane Burns, Joshua Rajman, Shira Cahn-Lipman, Anne Olmsted, Jose Romero, Matthew Ford and Rishi Basu.
