Based on Giacomo Puccini’s opera, “La Boheme”, RENT follows a “year in the life” of a group of struggling bohemian artists living in New York’s Lower East Side under the shadow of AIDS. The show will be produced by Laurie Edwards, directed by Tom Frascatore, with music direction by Regina McAllen and choreography by Kelly Gemellaro.
