Rent Tickets and Schedule
Rent is another of those many shows on Broadway that has completed more than 10 years of continuous run. This rock musical has been extremely successful on Broadway, and has enjoyed years of word-of-mouth popularity, along with critical acclaim. Its 10 years on Broadway was celebrated by its entire original cast with a special performance on April 24, 2006. Rent debuted in New York City at the New York Theater Workshop on February 13, 1996, and previewed on Broadway at the Nederlander Theater on April 16, 1996, and opened on April 29, 1996.
Based on Puccini’s La Bohème, the show is a Pulitzer Prize and Tony Awards winner. The Broadway production is credited with bringing to the fore, contrary to the then existing traditionally conservative theater scene, controversial topics countering the then prevalent culture. It is also credited with making the musicals popular with the younger generation. One of the first musicals on Broadway to feature gay, bisexual, lesbian and transgender characters, Rent also brought in ethnically diverse cast, including racial minorities, in its leading roles.
This successful musical on Broadway was nominated for 10 categories of Tony Awards in 1996, and won four of them: Best Musical, Best Book of a Musical - Jonathan Larson, Best Original Score - Jonathan Larson, Best Performance by a Featured Actor in a Musical - Wilson Jermaine Heredia. It was also nominated for 10 categories for the Drama Desk Awards, and won in 6 categories. In addition, the New York City hit show won the 1996 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, as well as two 1996 Theater World Awards for Outstanding New Talent - Adam Pascal and Daphne Rubin-Vega. The Story Profile
Though based on Puccini’s La Bohème, Jonathan Larson’s Rent has been relocated to the era of AIDS, in East Village, New York. This is the story of a penniless songwriter, whose love for a young woman never diminishes, even as illness increasingly consumes her. It is the story of the poet Rodolfo - now a punk rocker. It is the story of a dancer at an S&M nightclub – Mimi – who is tubercular, and now is also AIDS infected. It is the story of Marcello, a painter aspiring to be a filmmaker. It is the story of love, striving to endure beyond all obstacles.
Finally, it is the story worth spending time to see. Arranging Your Tickets
