American Theater Company (ATC) and About Face Theatre have announced casting for Jonathan Larson's Rent, to run April 27 - June 17 at ATC, according to a report in Time Out Chicago. As previously reported, David Cromer will stage the musical.

The 1996 Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning rock opera is set at the end of the 1980's, as a group of Bohemian artists struggle to find life, love and art in a brutal economy and the height of the AIDS crisis.

The company will feature Alex Agard (Tom Collins), Lili-Anne Brown (JoAnne), Esteban Andres Cruz (Angel), Grace Gealey (Mimi), Aileen May (Maureen), Tony Santiago (Benjamin Coffin III), Alan Schmuckler (Mark Cohen), and Derrick Trumbly (Roger), along with Karla Beard, Aaron Nelson, Danielle Plisz, Tyler Ravelson, Steve Tomlitz, Anji White and Luke Wygodny.
