"A wonderful opportunity to see [Rent] in an intimate setting. If you’ve seen it previously and it’s been a while, this local production is worth another look...The stage is multi-dimensional...the entire cast is excellent. There are so many performances that left a lasting impression long after the curtain fell." -- Tom Boudrot, Theater Mirror

The Tony- and Pulitzer Prize-winning phenomenon invites us into the lives of a group of artists and friends in NYC’s East Village as they struggle through the AIDS epidemic and financial hardship to follow their dreams without selling out. For almost 30 years RENT has inspired generations of audiences to choose love over fear and to live without regret. This is theater at its best – exuberant, passionate and joyous. La Vie Boheme!

Our 2022-2023 season, was created in collaboration with members of The Umbrella Stage family, including Board, Staff, Directors, Designers, and Performers. We would like to extend our deepest thanks for their time, insights, and perspectives.
