One of my favorite musicals ever is coming to DC! 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.
Now, this Pulitzer and Tony Award-winning masterpiece returns to the stage in a vibrant 20th anniversary touring production. A reimagining 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.
RENT is coming to the National Theatre Tuesday, November 12th and runs through Sunday, November 17th! I am so excited to take my daughter to this one! This musical is recommended for ages 13 and up.Run time: Approximately 2 hours, 35 minutes, including one intermission.
