About this show

Based on Puccini's La Boheme, Rent is a rock opera that tells the story of one year in the life of friends living the Bohemian life in New York City in the late 1980's. The story centers around roommates Mark, a struggling filmmaker, and Roger, an HIV-positive musician and former junkie. While a previous tragedy has made Roger numb to life, Mark tries to capture it through his attempts to make a film. In the year that follows, the group deals with love, loss, AIDS, and the power of friendship in this compelling and significant story.
