About This Show

The profound impact of composer and lyricist Jonathan Larson (Rent; Tick, Tick, Boom) on musical theater – and the creators who have followed him – is given the spotlight in this new Lyrics & Lyricists show from a collaborator who was there from the start.

The show’s artistic director, James Nicola, former artistic director of New York Theater Workshop – the small East Village theater where Rent was first workshopped – shares the stories about Larson only he can tell. “As passionate, unpretentious and powerful as anything I’ve heard in musical theater for more than a decade,” wrote The New Yorker about Rent when it opened on Broadway. Join us as we celebrate the music and all that was passionate, unpretentious and powerful about Jonathan Larson.
