Synopsis: Based loosely on Giacomo Puccini’s La Boheme, RENT follows a year in the life of a group of impoverished young artists and musicians in New York City’s Lower East Side, during the late 1980s HIV/ AIDS crisis. The physical and emotional complications of the disease permeate the lives of the characters, as they struggle with addictions, gender/sexual identity, family issues, and the rising cost of rent. The plot unfolds as these young bohemian friends negotiate their dreams, relationships, and conflicts in this groundbreaking pop-rock musical, while the audience sees the story through the eyes of a filmmaker, lawyer, professor, musicians and performers.
