This Show Has Created Broadway Buzz for 20 Years – Now, See Rent on October 15th

In 1996, an original rock musical by a little-known composer opened on Broadway… and forever changed the landscape of American theatre. Two decades later, Jonathan Larson’s Rent continues to speak loudly and defiantly to audiences across generations and all over the world. And now, this Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning masterpiece return to the stage in a vibrant 20th-anniversary tour. Don’t miss Rent when it comes to the North Charleston Performing Arts Center on Tuesday, October 15th.

A re-imagining of Puccini's La Bohème, Rent follows an unforgettable year in the lives of seven artists struggling to follow their dreams without selling out. With its inspiring message of joy and hope in the face of fear, this timeless celebration of friendship and creativity reminds us to measure our lives with the only thing that truly matters—love.

The show received its world premiere off-Broadway at New York Theatre Workshop on February 13, 1996, to ecstatic reviews and transferred to Broadway on April 29, 1996. Rent won the 1996 Tony Award for Best Musical as well as the Pulitzer Prize for Drama. You don’t want to miss this outstanding production!
