Set in New York City’s Lower East Side in the days of Bohemia in Alphabet City, the musical Rent is about falling in love, finding your voice and living for today. Winner of the Tony Award for Best Musical and the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, Rent is a pop culture phenomenon with songs that rock and a story that resonates for audiences of all ages. Based on Puccini’s La Boheme, Rent follows a year in the life of a group of young artists struggling to survive and create in the shadow of HIV/AIDS during the 1990s. How these bohemians negotiate their dreams, loves and conflicts provides a compelling narrative for a groundbreaking musical that reverberates, louder than ever, two decades after its debut.

Who better to tell the story of young creative artists, struggling to find out who they are, how to love, how to lose and how to fight for what they believe in, than the magnificent cast of Rent featuring the young musician/actors here at McNally Smith College of Music. It is also their story. Beautiful, inspiring, charged, volatile music like Seasons of Love, Take Me Or Leave Me, Rent, La Vie Boheme and so many more will have you laughing, crying and planning your next protest.

RENT has changed Broadway forever and transformed how new generations feel about musical theatre. Whether it's your 1st time or your 100th time, you won't want to miss this production of RENT!
