David Cromer's new production of Jonathan Larson's Pulitzer Prize-winning Rent began April 27 in Chicago for a run through June 17.

The Rent cast includes Alex Agard as Tom Collins, Lili-Anne Brown as JoAnne, Esteban Andres Cruz as Angel, Grace Gealy as Mimi, Aileen May as Maureen, Tony Santiago as Benny, Alan Schmuckler as Mark and Derrick Trumbly as Roger, along with Karla Beard (Woman 2), Aaron Nelson (Man 4), Danielle Plisz (Woman 1), Tyler Ravelson (Man 2), Steve Tomlitz (Man 3), Anji White (Woman 3) and Luke Wygodny (Man 1).

Set in the East Village of 1990, this Rent is "a fresh look at Jonathan Larson's 1996 Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning rock opera," according to the co-producers. "At the end of the 1980s, a group of Bohemian artists struggle to find life, love and art in a brutal economy and the height of the AIDS crisis. Director David Cromer will bring a staggering reality to this landmark musical."
