Rent is a rock musical with music, lyrics, and book by Jonathan Larson and is loosely based on Giacomo Puccini’s opera La Bohème.
It tells the story of a group of impoverished young artists struggling to survive and create a life in Lower Manhattan’s East Village in the thriving days of Bohemian Alphabet City, under the shadow of HIV/AIDS.
Rent at the Hope Mill played from the 30th of October 2020 closing early on the 3rd of November 2020 due to another covid-19 national lockdown.
A recording of the show was streamed throughout November and December 2020 to critical acclaim.
The show was remounted in 2021.
