RENT is an inspiring musical about friends and artists struggling with addiction, poverty, AIDS and most of all, love. Set in the East Village of New York City, RENT is about falling in love, finding your voice and living for today. Winner of the Tony Award for Best Musical and the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, RENT has become a pop cultural phenomenon with songs that rock and a story that resonates with audiences of all ages.

Based loosely on Puccini’s La Bohème, Jonathan Larson’s RENT follows a year in the life of a group of impoverished young artists and musicians struggling to survive and create in New York’s Lower East Side, under the shadow of HIV/AIDS. The physical and emotional complications of the disease pervade the lives of Roger, Mimi, Tom, and Angel. Maureen deals with her chronic infidelity through performance art; her partner, Joanne, wonders if their relationship is worth the trouble. Benny has sold out his bohemian ideals in exchange for a hefty income and is on the outs with his former friends. Mark, an aspiring filmmaker, feels like an outsider to life in general. How these young bohemians negotiate their dreams, loves, and conflicts provides the narrative thread to this groundbreaking musical.

Book, music and lyrics by Jonathan Larson. Musical arrangements by Steve Skinner. Original concept/additional lyrics by Billy Aronson. Musical supervision and additional arrangements by Tim Weil. Dramaturg Lynn Thomson.

RENT will be directed by Lexi Lawson. Ms. Lawson starred as Mimi in the world BROADWAY TOUR of RENT with original cast members, Adam Pascal and Anthony Rapp. She appeared on Season 8 of American Idol and is a graduate of Newburgh Free Academy in Newburgh, NY. Sugar Loaf PAC is proud to welcome Ms. Lawson back home to direct this very special production. Contains mature themes and strong language.

RENT is presented through Special Arrangement with Music Theatre International.
