News   David Cromer Will Stage Rent for American Theater Company
Chicago's American Theater Company has confirmed that David Cromer, who offered audiences a fresh look at Thornton Wilder's Our Town, will tackle Jonathan Larson's Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize-winning musical Rent in spring 2012.

The groundbreaking 1995 rock musical that takes on the AIDS crisis and the struggle of young artists striving to find their voices on Manhattan's Lower East Side will run April 28-June 17, 2012.

Cromer is currently preparing for a fall workshop of the musical Yank!, which is supported by San Diego's Old Globe. The in-demand director recently staged Tennessee Williams' A Streetcar Named Desire at the Williamstown Theatre Festival, as well as the Broadway revival of The House of Blue Leaves. His credits also include Adding Machine, When the Rain Stops Falling, Picnic and the short-lived 2009 Broadway revival of Brighton Beach Memoirs.
