Following successes with Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and Shrek, Leicester Amateur Operatic Society return in 2020 with the iconic rock musical, Rent.
Set in the East Village of New York City, Rent is about falling in love, finding your voice and living for today. Winner of the Tony Award for Best Musical and the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, Rent has become a cultural phenomenon with songs that rock and a story that resonates with audiences of all ages.
Based loosely on Puccini’s La Boheme, Jonathan Larson’s Rent follows a year in the life of a group of impoverished young artists and musicians struggling to survive and create in New York’s Lower East Side, under the shadow of HIV/AIDS.
This is theatre at its best – exuberant, passionate, and joyous…. No day but today!
Suitable for age 12+
An amateur production presented by arrangement with Music Theatre International (Europe)
