RENT

Off The Leash Theatre Company is proud to present RENT running from 24 August to 1 September 2018 at West Gippsland Arts Centre.

Directed by Todd Miller, Musically Directed by Esther White, Choreographed by Rachel O’Dwyer and Production Managed by Leane Gooding.

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 pop cultural phenomenon with songs that rock and a story that resonates with audiences of all ages.

Based loosely on Puccini’s La Boheme, RENT follows a year in the life of a group of friends struggling to make it in the big city. They include Mark, a filmmaker and the narrator of the story; his former girlfriend, Maureen, a performance artist; Maureen’s lover, Joanne, a public interest lawyer; Mark’s roommate Roger, a musician; Mimi, an exotic dancer, with whom Roger falls in love; Tom Collins, a computer genius; Collins’ lover, Angel, a street musician and drag queen; and Benny, a former member of the group who, after marrying into a wealthy family, has become their landlord. How these young bohemians negotiate their dreams, loved and conflicts, against a backdrop of the 1990s AIDSs epidemic, provides the narrative thread for this ground-breaking musical.
