Set in the East Village of New York City, Rent is about falling in love, finding your voice and living for
today. Based loosely on Puccini's La Boheme, Jonathan Larson's Rent follows a year in the life of a
group of impoverished young artists and musicians struggling to survive and create in New York's
Lower East Side, under the shadow of HIV/AIDS. The physical and emotional complications of the
disease pervade the lives of Roger, Mimi, Tom and Angel. Maureen deals with her chronic infidelity
through performance art; her partner, Joanne, wonders if their relationship is worth the trouble.
Benny has sold out his Bohemian ideals in exchange for a hefty income and is on the outs with his
former friends. Mark, an aspiring filmmaker, feels like an outsider to life in general. How these young
bohemians negotiate their dreams, loves and conflicts provides the narrative thread to this
groundbreaking musical.
