Theatre Preview: “RENT” @ City Lights Theatre Company, Opening 7/24


Book, music, and lyrics by Jonathan Larson

Non-Profit Partner: The Health Trust

Directed by Lisa Mallette

The shockingly original and deeply moving Broadway hit at City Lights, the perfect company to bring it to life.

This fresh and daring spin on Puccini’s La Bohème follows the triumphs and tragedies of eight young Greenwich Village bohemians. Mark, Roger, Mimi, and their urban tribe of friends and lovers search for inspiration, passion, and identity in a world rife with heartache and pain. As the spectre of the AIDS virus looms and threatens to cut short their time together, this small band of artists and thinkers finds beauty in the grit and grime of Manhattan and comes to realize that there is, truly, “no day but today.”

  1. Saw the show last night. Definitely some high points and definitely some low points. High points ANGEL period! Low points costumes, ensemble and Mimi and Roger. Vocals were OK but acting was not believeable. Got no emotion from me. Mark did a great job as did Collin. I am glad I went because I love the show RENT but I see this cast as very lopsided with talent. Definitely wortht the price for preview but for someone to pay $40.00 is waste of money.
