Based loosely on Puccini’s opera 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, all under the shadow of HIV/AIDS. RENT is presented by On Pitch Performing Arts (OPPA!) in partnership with Umbrella Theatre Company as part of their 2021 Community Theatre Season. With a cast made up of entirely local talent, this important story is not to be missed! RENT deals with themes and topics that may not be suitable to all audiences. We are rating this reading PG-13.
