The rockin’ musical production Rent has just closed their doors on Broadway and is now starting their national tour
this January. The musical was turned into a Chris Columbus adapted film in 2005 and later saw some of the final shows filmed
for a special segment celebrating its 12 ½ years on stage. The show is still just as magical as when it first premiered
on stage years ago, so if you can’t get enough of the 500 hundred 25 thousand 600 minutes of Rent, pick up some Rent Durham tickets today!
Rent’s creator was never able to bask in the glory of his play’s success, as the night before its Off-Broadway
premiere, Jonathan Larson died of an aortic aneurysm. Though it took years to create, since its debut it has won dozens
of awards, including several Tonys, the Pulitzer Prize and The Obie. Over the years Rent has toured across the globe, hitting
Japan, England, Australia, Germany and others. Based on the opera La Boheme, the musical is set in modern day New York City’s
East Village and follows the lives of friends struggling to survive.
