The Tony award winning play RENT was written by Jonathan Larson and is based on "La Boheme," a classic Puccini opera. The show brought theater to a younger audience and was a enormous success. It's set in a dingy apartment loft in New York City's East Village. The character's are all "young ...artists struggling to celebrate life in the shadow of drugs, poverty and AID's," is how Jonathan Wiederhorn put it in ROLLING STONE. The show mix's all kinds of dance and music making it a Broadway legend.
