The Texas Tech Department of Theatre and Dance presents "RENT" Oct. 10-13 and Oct. 17-20.
A Tony Award- and Pulitzer Prize-winning musical and one of the longest running shows on Broadway, "RENT" has become a pop cultural phenomenon with songs that rock and a story that resonates with audiences.
Based loosely on Puccini's "La Boheme," "RENT" follows 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.
Book, music, and lyrics by Jonathan Larson directed by Linda Donahue. WARNING: ADULT LANGUAGE AND SITUATIONS.
