"Bohemia is Dead"

Rent, the Pulitzer Prize-winning musical by Jonathan Larson, examines diverse denizens of Lower East Side Manhattan as they struggle to make the rent, find love, and cope with HIV. This iconic musical has become a modern day classic with its compelling score and tragically human characters.
