Bristol Riverside Theatre concludes its 25th anniversary season with the Pulitzer Prize-winning Jonathan Larson musical Rent, which runs through June 3.
Directed by Jose Zayas, the cast features Julian Alvarez, Mark Willis Borum, Tracie Franklin, James LaRosa, Meera Mohan, Brendan Norton, Tyrone Roberson, Jamila Sabares-Klemm, Tara Tagliaferro, Brit West and Nadine Zahr with local actors Michael Hogan, Joseph Michael O’Brien and Carl Nathaniel Smith.
Rent, according to production notes, "tells the story of a group of impoverished young artists and musicians struggling to survive and create in New York's Lower East Side in the thriving days of Bohemian Alphabet City, under the shadow of HIV/AIDS."
The creative team also includes set designer Jason Simms, lighting designer Ryan O’Gara, costume designer Carla Bellisio and choreographer Stephen Casey.
