Jonathan Larson’s groundbreaking Tony and Pulitzer Prize Award winner reinvented musicals when it debuted in 1996. An inspiring story about friends and artists struggling in New York City’s East Village, Rent tackles addiction, poverty, AIDS and most of all, love.
Directed by Troy Nickerson, it tells the story of a group of impoverished young artists and musicians struggling to survive and create in New York City’s Lower East Side. Rent is one of the most popular shows in the 53 year history of The Modern-CDA. The Modern Theater and The Friends of The Bing are proud to present this limited engagement at The Bing Crosby Theater.
