A group of 20-somethings face a future filled with fear and uncertainty, amidst social and political unrest, poverty, drug abuse and HIV/AIDS: Mark, an aspiring film-maker; Roger, a doomed musician; Collins, a “vagabond anarchist”; Angel, a transvestite street busker; Mimi, a troubled dancer; Maureen, a wild-child performance artist; hot-shot law student Joanne; and Benny, the one who “sold his soul” and became a “yuppie”. As they face their many challenges, friendships become fractured, hearts and bodies get broken, and their will to survive is pushed to the limit.
Ultimately Rent is a powerful and passionate testament to hope, humanity, friendship, and above all, Love.
Rent premiered in 1996, winning the Tony Award for Best Musical, and the Pulitzer Prize for Drama. Pangdemonium is proud to be staging this 20th Anniversary production of this much-loved and acclaimed modern classic.
