    Loosely based on Puccini’s opera La Bohème, RENT is a Putlizer Prize and four-time Tony Award musical that follows a year in the life of a group of struggling young artists living in Manhattan’s East Village. Mark, an aspiring filmmaker, struggles to find his place in the world; his roommate Roger, an HIV-positive musician, wonders how he will leave his mark before he dies. Mimi and Angel look for true love as they face the harsh reality of life when HIV-positive, while the lawyer Joanne seeks loyalty from her flirtatious performance artist girlfriend Maureen. The group’s dreams, losses, and love stories weave through the musical’s narration to paint a stunningly raw and heart-breaking portrait of the gritty bohemian world of New York City in the late 1980s, under the shadow of HIV/AIDS.
