RENT: the musical
Come see Jonathan Larson’s Pulitzer Prize-winning retelling of the classic Italian opera, “La Boheme” at South Jackson Civic Center on July 10-12 and 17-19. Set in New York City during the AIDS epidemic of the late 20th century, RENT follows a group of 8 young adults attempting to embrace the bohemian lifestyle. Follow them through a year of their lives as they encounter love, death, poverty, affliction, and addiction. Featuring a Grammy Award-winning soundtrack including songs such as “Seasons of Love” and “La Vie Boheme,” this modern rock opera will have you on the edge of your seat from start to finish! Directed for the stage by Robert Allen. Musical direction by Erica Petersen. RENT explores material that some may wish to discuss with younger viewers prior to attending. BE INFORMED. Youth under 18 will need to be accompanied by an adult.
