The Art House in association with LPD Productions and Sugary Rum Productions presents
Book, Music and Lyrics by Jonathan Larson
The Art House is extremely excited to bring RENT to the Central Coast direct from a season at The Sydney Opera House.
New York City, East Village, 1991. The vibrant, passionate bohemian community is dwindling. Gentrification pushes people from their homes, disease ravishes
the population. Yet in the course of one life-changing year, a group of friends fight for their place in the world. For love. For life in the face
Jonathan Larson’s multiple Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize winning sensation is more relevant today than ever before. After a year of social, physical and emotional turmoil, a brand new Australian production of RENT will bring our community back together with its rebellious premiere this summer.
Featuring all the hits from the award winning score including “La Vie Boheme”, “Take Me or Leave Me”, “RENT” and “Seasons of Love”.
Come celebrate life and love in all its forms in this revolutionary, classic rock musical.
“In these dangerous times where the world is ripping apart at the seams, we can learn from those who stare death in the face every day, by reaching out to each other and bonding as a community.” Jonathan Larson, 1996.
