Based loosely on Puccini's La Boheme, Jonathan Larson’s RENT follows a year in the life of a group of impoverished young artists and musicians struggling to survive and create in New York’s Lower East Side, under the shadow of HIV/AIDS. RENT is about falling in love, finding your voice and living for today. Winner of the Tony for Best Musical and the Pulitzer for Drama, RENT has become a pop cultural phenomenon.

Performance Dates: June 26 – July 5, 2015 (TWO WEEKENDS ONLY!)
(Note: There will be no performances on Saturday, July 4)

Anybody out there remember Beatlemania back in the 1960s?

Maybe you've heard about the commotion when Elvis burst upon the scene a few years earlier.

Lisztmania was like that in Europe in the 1840s.

Audiences went berzerk at this virtuoso pianist who played music considered unplayable except by himself.... or the devil.

So, did Liszt sell his soul in exchange for his skill -- as blues musician Robert Johnson was said to have done at that Mississippi crossroads a century later?
