Jonathan Larson’s Tony and Pulitzer Prize winning musical RENT follows a year in the lives of young artists seeking connections, navigating political instability, mourning losses, and facing the relentless toll of the AIDS virus. Full of songs, sex, and celebration, RENT re–envisions Puccini’s classic La Bohéme for a Gen X world. RENT opens the door for a look back in order to move boldly forward. Tickets are on sale now at thevirginia.org.
