The Tony Award-winning and Pulitzer Prize-winning rock musical Rent, a work that broke ground in the contemporary musical theatre, opened on Broadway 17 years ago on April 29, 1996. Here, Playbill.com celebrates the iconic piece by the late Jonathan Larson.
Larson's legacy lives on in the multitude of productions of Rent, which recently enjoyed an Off-Broadway revival at New World Stages. Here are performances from the Off-Broadway revival, original Broadway production, 2005 feature film adaptation, concert outings, tenth anniversary and more.
Playbill.com has put together a handful of videos featuring the work of the composer-lyricist who taught us to measure a year in love and that there's no day but today.
You're invited to spend an evening filled with personal tales of difficult choices, bad breaks, worse men and some of the most glorious songs ever written. It's an intimate evening, up close with a legend.
So pull up a chair and order up a drink. Because she's got a life to sing. Tickets as low as $85!
