at Redgrave Theatre, Bristol

Come and join BMCC as we present our version of Rent. Rent is the rock musical phenomenon that defined a generation and paved the way for all contemporary musicals that followed it.

Rent has music, lyrics and book by Jonathan Larson. Loosely based on Giacomo Puccini's opera "La Boheme", it tells the story of a group of impoverished young artists struggling to survive the 90s and create a life in Lower Manhattan's East Village in the thriving days of Bohemian Alphabet City under the shadow of HIV/AIDS.

Rent was an overnight sensation on Broadway ultimately winning four Tony Awards, six Drama Desk Awards and the hugely prestigious Pulitzer Prize for Drama. It ran on Broadway for an astonishing 12 years though its opening night was tainted with sadness as composer Jonathan Larson died suddenly the night before its premier.

His amazing legacy lives on in the music and the lives of Roger, Mark, Mimi, Joanne, Maureen, Angel, Collins and Benny and unforgettable songs like Seasons Of Love, One Song Glory, Rent, Light My Candle, I'll Cover You, Another Day and many others.
