The tribute event will include stories, songs from the musical, and more.
Former cast members from the Broadway, national tour, and off-Broadway productions of Rent are set to present Seasons of Love, a Valentine's Day tribute to the hit musical at the Cutting Room on February 12.
The concert will include songs from the musical, as well as special, unheard stories from former cast members, including Richard H. Blake (A Bronx Tale — The Musical), Nicholas Christopher (Hamilton), Corey Mach (Godspell), and Christina Sajous (American Idiot). Also featured will be Jeff Cuttler (High), Aaron LaVigne (Spider-Man Turn Off the Dark), Marcus Paul James (In the Heights), Trisha Jeffrey (Little Shop of Horrors), Tracy McDowell (Motown The Musical), Onyie Nwachukwu (Rent), Jed Resnick (Avenue Q), Anwar Robinson (American Idol), and M.J. Rodriguez (Runaways).
With music, lyrics, and book by Jonathan Larson, Rent ran on Broadway for 12 years and enjoyed several national tours and an off-Broadway production. The show won four Tony Awards, six Drama Desk Awards, and the Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 1996. In 2005, it was adapted into a major motion picture featuring original cast members Anthony Rapp, Adam Pascal, Jesse L. Martin, Wilson Jermaine Heredia, Idina Menzel, and Taye Diggs.
Seasons of Love is produced under the wing of the concert series Broadway Sings, created by Corey Mach. The one-night-only concert will be music-directed by Joshua Stephen Kartes.
