La Vie Boheme! For over a quarter of a century, Jonathan Larson’s Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize-winning masterpiece has inspired us to choose love over fear and to live without regret. Its immeasurable emotional impact has forever changed the world of musical theatre, and is now coming to the EOT stage. 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, RENT follows a year in the lives of a diverse group of artists and friends struggling to follow their dreams without selling out, trying to survive and create in New York's Lower East Side, under the shadow of HIV/AIDS. How these young bohemians negotiate their dreams, loves, and conflicts provides the narrative thread to this groundbreaking musical. Winner of the Tony Award for Best Musical and the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, RENT has become a pop cultural phenomenon with songs that rock and a story that resonates with audiences of all ages. RENT helped to shape a generation of audiences and taught us all to measure our life in love.
