Here on in, Rent’s marquee will be lit
See if anything comes of it, instead of this old shit.
20 years ago this week, the face of musical theater was forever changed thanks to Jonathan Larson’s brilliant show, Rent. It made its Broadway debut at the Nederlander Theatre on April 29th, 1996, just three months after he sadly passed away. And this week, we’re paying tribute to him, the cast, and the show which had a profound impact on our lives and the lives of millions around the world.
Join us as we raise a glass to La Vie Boheme, because for the next five days – everything is rent.
