"The modern-day musical that swept the nation tells the stories of a group of artists on the Lower East Side of Manhattan," according to the Weston Playhouse. "The make-shift family journeys through a year experiencing the joy of rebellion, the beauty of love and the heartbreak of death. From the first chord to the last refrain, audience members will be entranced and moved by the heroic characters and their daily struggles."

The Rent creative team also includes music director Greg Brown, scenic designer Timothy R. Mackabee, costume designer Kirche Leigh Zeile, lighting designer Jack Mehler, sound designer Kristyn R. Smith, production stage manager John Godbout and assistant stage manager Kate Baxter Davis.
