PVA Fall musical 'Rent'

Rent, the musical

Book, music, and lyrics by: Jonathan Larson
Directed by: Jennifer LeBlanc
Jonathan Larson’s beloved musical, Rent, follows the ups and downs of a year in the life of a group of impoverished, artistic friends living in Manhattan’s East Village. Mark, an aspiring filmmaker, struggles to find his place in the world; his roommate Roger, an HIV-positive musician, wonders how he will leave his mark before he dies. Mimi and Angel look for true love as they face the harsh reality of life as HIV-positive young people, while the businesslike Joanne seeks commitment from her wild-child performance artist girlfriend Maureen. At its heart, Rent is a story about people coming together to support each other in the worst of times, creating a community that has each other’s backs, and about people seeing the beauty in each other and accepting and celebrating them for who they are.
