RENT

Information

In 2016, Highway Run Productions once again cut the bolts from the doors and declare squatter's rights on Hayes Theatre Co. Selling out the initial season before opening night, RENT returns for a strictly limited three week run from March 29th.

At the dawn of the 1990s, New York City’s East Village is home to an ever-diminishing bohemian community. Development pushes people from their borough, disease withers loved ones from their lives, and a group of friends fight for their place in the face of such quiet vanishing.

Jonathan Larson’s RENT opened Off-Broadway in 1996 on the 25th of January and became a global phenomenon. The show would earn Larson multiple Tony Awards along with a Pulitzer Prize for Drama – a distinction not received by a music theatre work for another 14 years. Though Larson himself would never see the impact of his masterwork – passing suddenly in the early hours of the very day the show would open to the public – it’s longevity serves as a testament to the emotional resonance of Larson’s creation and an embodiment of its ever-present message: “no day but today.”
