Press notes state: "Set in New York City's gritty East Village, this revolutionary rock musical is an imaginative retelling of the classic Puccini opera, La Boheme. This unforgettable story of a group of starving artists, who despite poverty and illness, learn to fall in love and find their voices, brings a universal message of hope for everyone."
