When it debuted, Rent took Broadway by storm! The rock opera, which is based on La Boheme by Puccini, was an instant classic with theatergoers. People seemed to enjoy the story of a group of friends who are living the Bohemian lifestyle in New York City's East Village. There's Mark Cohen, the nerdy filmmaker who has fallen in love; Maureen Johnson, Mark's former girlfriend who remains the object of his affection; Joanne Jefferson, Maureen's lesbian lover and Harvard-educated lawyer; Roger Davis, Mark's HIV-positive musician roommate; and a slew of other faulted, yet endearing characters. Watch the changes this group of friends go through in a year.

What began in the 1990s as a small show about young people struggling with AIDS, infidelity, drug use, and loss has become a worldwide phenomenon. The musical, which was written by Jonathan Larson, first debuted off-Broadway in 1994. Unfortunately, Larson was not alive to see that happen, having died shortly prior to the opening. The show won a Pulitzer Prize and eventually debuted on Broadway in 1996.
The original Broadway cast of the musical featured some tremendous performers who have gone on to do amazing work. Among them were Taye Diggs, who met his now wife Idina Menzel during show. Menzel would later go on to win a Tony for her role as Elphaba in Wicked. Both Menzel and Diggs have appeared in television shows and movies. Another big star was Jesse L Martin, who went on to do Law and Order
The three would reunite with the majority of the rest of the original cast to do a movie version of the show in 2004. Although not as critically acclaimed as the musical, the movie was loved by many die-hard fans of Rent. And there are a lot of die-hard fans of the musical, often lining up to score free tickets before each night's performance, these fans travel from town to town to watch the show on its national tour. It is clear that the musical touches people and has great meaning to both the young and old, gay or straight. Because of its issues with homosexuality, it was considered ground-breaking at the time of its release because it features same-sex kissing.
The national tour of Rent has been very successful and it has given the whole country a chance to see this wonderful show, rather than just those who live in or visit New York City. If you want to see if Rent will be playing soon in your area, check out the listings here on EventTicketDepot. They have tickets to all the towns that this landmark musical will be in.
