Set in the East Village of New York City, 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, it has become a pop cultural phenomenon with songs that rock and a story that resonates with audiences of all ages. Based loosely on Puccini's La Boheme, RENT follows a year in the life of a group of impoverished young artists and musicians struggling to survive and create in New York's Lower East Side, under the shadow of HIV/AIDS.
How these young bohemians negotiate their dreams, loves and conflicts provides the narrative thread to this groundbreaking musical. The School Edition of Rent has been carefully adapted, working with the Larson estate to retain the dramatic intent of the groundbreaking rock musical.
