Quotes & Highlights
“It shimmers with hope for the future of the American musical” —New York Times
Rent, the critically acclaimed Tony Award- and Pulitzer Prize-winning musical that inspired a major motion picture, has made a lasting mark on Broadway with songs that rock and a story that really resonates. Set in the East Village of New York City, Rent is about being young and learning to survive, falling in love, finding your voice and living for today.
The show received its world premiere off-Broadway at New York Theatre Workshop on February 13, 1996, to ecstatic reviews. It quickly became a sold-out hit. The show transferred to Broadway on April 29, 1996, where it continues to play at The Nederlander Theatre. Rent is now the seventh longest running show in Broadway history.
The success of Rent is always tempered by the death of its creator, Jonathan Larson. Larson died unexpectedly of an aortic aneurysm on the morning of January 25, 1996, just hours after Rent’s final dress rehearsal off-Broadway, and 10 days before his 36th birthday.
Written by Jonathan Larson
