East Village. 1989. Facing a brutal economy and a raging AIDS epidemic, a group of Bohemian artists struggle to find life, love, and art in New York’s East Village. Celebrated Broadway director David Cromer returns to Chicago with a powerful new take on Jonathan Larson’s Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning rock opera.

Continuing its tradition of taking insightful approaches to American musicals, American Theater Company has teamed up with About Face Theatre for the first time since Hedwig and the Angry Inch to bring _Rent _back to the Chicago stage.
