Rent is a rock musical loosely based on the opera La Boheme.

It made an off-Broadway debut at the New York Theatre Workshop in 1993. However, it would be a few years before Rent officially made its Broadway debut. The musical opened on Broadway on April 29, 1996, at the Nederlander Theater. Don't miss your chance to see this rock musical when it heads to the stage in Detroit.
Take Me or Leave Me: The Story of Rent
Rent was the brainchild of Jonathan Larson. Tragically, he would not live to see the debut of his show on the stage. He died suddenly of an undiagnosed heart condition the night before the off-Broadway premiere. Despite the tragic beginnings, Rent has won several awards, including a Tony Award for Best Musical in 1996. After 12 years, the Broadway production closed on September 7, 2008. Rent is the 11th longest-running show on Broadway with 5,123 performances. Over the years, it has grossed over $280 million at the box office. The success of the musical has produced several national and international tours. In 2005, Rent was adapted into a film with the original cast members.
