About Rent, the Musical
Based partly on Puccini’s opera La Bohéme, the story of Rent is set in New York City’s gritty East Village in the early 90s. It focuses on a group of impoverished artists striving to express themselves and find meaning in their condition while struggling with the devastating effects of HIV, problematic relationships, addiction and subsequent loss.
Using a single industrial set, Rent is an unforgiving rock musical that effortlessly incorporates pop-style ballads, soul and gospel.
Performed on Broadway more than five thousand times over the course of 12 years, Rent is one of the most successful shows in recent history.
