At 2 pm on Saturday Aug 10, 17. at Orlando Shakespeare Theatre
The theatre company Clandestine Arts will be performing the Broadway hit RENT. The rock musical takes a lot of its inspiration from Giacomo Puccini's opera La bohème. It's a modern rendition about a group of misunderstood artists and musicians in the underbelly of New York City searching for truth, beauty, and joy in a world marked by poverty, AIDS, class warefare, and addiction.
Along with winning a Pulitzer Prize in 1996, the play also won Best Musical at the Tony Awards. The play is intended for a more mature audience. RENT from Clandestine Arts is being directed by Derek Critzer.
There will be 10 showings of the play from August 8 - 18 at the John and Rita Lowndes Shakespeare Center. For more info on this venue, check out the profile page for the Orlando Shakespeare Theatre.
