Rent – Nov. 2 – Jan. 2, 2022
Jonathan Larson’s Earth-shattering musical comes to Signature Theatre as part of the venue’s triumphant reopening. Rent is iconic in every sense of the word, a Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize-winning masterpiece that focuses on a group of friends in New York City’s East Village in the late 1990s. Faced with gentrification, loss, the complications of love and the HIV/AIDS crisis, the group uses the power of songs like “Seasons of Love” and “I’ll Cover You” to embrace hope and survive.
