FHSU Encore Series: Rent: 20th Anniversary Tour

Friday, February 1, 2019

In 1996, an original rock musical by a little-known composer opened on Broadway & forever changed the landscape of American theatre. Two decades later, Jonathan Larson’s “RENT” continues to speak loudly & defiantly to audiences across generations & all over the world.

Now, this Pulitzer Prize & Tony Award®-winning masterpiece returns to the stage in a vibrant 20th anniversary tour. A re-imagining of Puccini's “La Bohème,” “RENT” follows a year in the lives of seven artists struggling to follow their dreams without selling out. With its inspiring message of joy & hope in the face of fear, this timeless celebration of friendship & creativity reminds us to measure our lives with the only thing that truly matters – love.
