RENT 20th Anniversary Tour 

February 25-26, 2020 | 7:30 p.m.
Mary W. Sommervold Hall

In 1996, an original rock musical by a little-known composer opened on Broadway and forever changed the landscape of American theatre. Two decades later, Jonathan Larson’s RENT continues to speak loudly and defiantly to audiences across generations and all over the world. And now, this Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award®-Winning masterpiece returns to the stage in a vibrant 20th anniversary touring production.

A re-imagining of Puccini's La Bohème, RENT follows an unforgettable year in the lives of seven artists struggling to follow their dreams without selling out. With its inspiring message of joy and hope in the face of fear, this timeless celebration of friendship and creativity reminds us to measure our lives with the only thing that truly matters—love.

The show is recommended for ages 13 and up. The show features mature themes and situations.

The Washington Pavilion considers parents/guardians to be the best decision-makers on what is appropriate for their children and families.
