Rent Philadelphia Tickets
Rent Philadelphia TicketsThe musical Rent has been one of the longest-running and most awarded shows on Broadway since it premiered in 1996. The musical takes an in-depth look at life in New York City in the late 1980s as the characters battle with social issues revolving around sexuality, race, drug abuse and political unease under the looming threat of HIV/Aids. Despite being over two decades old, Rent tickets remain a popular option for theatergoers who are looking to enjoy the exuberant songwriting style of composer Jonathan Larson, who tragically died on the morning of the Off-Broadway opening of the show. Based on the classic opera, La Boheme, Rent would become an almost instant classic upon its Broadway debut winning the Tony award for Best Musical in 1996.
Tackling Many Important IssuesRent was designed by composer and book author Jonathan Larson to bring the characters and themes of La Boheme into the present day. Larson began working with the writer Billy Aronson in an attempt to turn La Boheme into a modern musical in the late 1980s before taking control of the entire project and turning it into a labor of love. The composer is credited with making the decision to bring the story to Manhattan and populate it with various groups who were seen as outsiders in the late '80s, including members of the LGBTQ+ community and the homeless. The major threat to the group of friends depicted in Rent is HIV/Aids with the show taking a distinctly dark tone at times, but each character is searching for their own epiphany throughout the show. Rent enjoyed a Broadway run of over 20 years and has been the subject of a number of tours around the world and a recent Off-Broadway revival. Although Jonathan Larson did complete another musical, it is widely agreed that Rent is his masterpiece with songs returning to the Billboard Top 40 as recently as the show's 20th anniversary. The original cast reunited for a movie version of Rent that brought attention to the work of cast members such as TV star Taye Diggs.
