Tucson, AZ – April 7, 2016

TUCSON, AZ – Adapted from Puccini’s La Bohème, this iconic rock musical centers on a group of young artists in New York’s modern-day East Village. The group struggles to maintain their friendships and non-conformist ideals as their community is ripped apart by the HIV/AIDS epidemic. Winner of the Tony Award for Best Musical and Pulitzer Prize for Drama, RENT is a powerful story of heroism in living, loving, fighting and surviving.
