2018-2019 UPPER SCHOOL THEATRE ARTS SEASON
Based loosely on Puccini's La Boheme, 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 in the nineties. These young bohemians are all unique, flawed, and lovably human, as they deal with the extreme highs and lows of new adulthood. How they strive to grow and respect each other's differences across huge caverns of disagreements (ultimately caring for each other as a community who "measures in love") provides the narrative thread to this groundbreaking, rocking and exuberant musical.
This show contains mature material and language. Parental discretion advised.
