Set in New York City's Lower East Side, Jonathan Larson's Rent is 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, this Broadway hit has become a pop culture phenomenon with songs that rock and a story that resonates with power and passion. Based on Puccini's La Bohème, Rent follows a year in the life of a group of penniless young artists and musicians struggling to survive and create under the shadow of HIV/AIDS. How these young bohemians negotiate their dreams, loves and conflicts provides the narrative to this groundbreaking rock musical. Learn More
Quotes & Highlights
- "Stomp is a sure-fire crowd-pleaser with a rock-and-roll heart." --New York Times
- "Let's face the furniture and dance: Fred Astaire would have loved Stomp. Scrappy and scruffy, Stomp makes music that is infectiously percussive. It dares you to sit on your hands." --New York Newsday
- "If you can tap it, bang it, slap it, knock it or just drum your fingers on it, the performers of Stomp can transform it into a remarkably expressive percussion instrument." --The Village Voice
Stomp is a movement of bodies, objects, sounds - even abstract ideas. But what makes it so appealing is that the cast uses everyday objects, but in non-traditional ways. There's no speech, no dialogue, not even a plot.
The cast is a group of rhythmically gifted, extremely coordinated performers who over the course of the performance compose a symphony using only matchbooks, create a dance routine based around sweeping, turn garbage into instruments, and walk around stage on oil drums.
