After a blisteringly successful run at the St James Theatre in London, Bruce Guthrie’s brand-new production of the legendary, multi-award winning rock musical Rent comes to Nottingham as it celebrates its incredible 20th anniversary.
This exhilarating, landmark musical tells the thrilling story of a group of impoverished young artists struggling to survive in New York City’s East Village in the thriving days of Bohemian excess.
Inspired by Puccini’s classic opera La Bohème, Rent features unforgettable music and lyrics by Jonathan Larson including the much-loved songs Seasons of Love, Take Me or Leave Me and La Vie Bohème.
Winner of four Tony® Awards, six Drama Desk Awards and the hugely prestigious Pulitzer Prize for Drama, it ran on Broadway for an astonishing 12 years.
Featuring a brilliant cast that includes Layton Williams (Bad Education, Billy Elliot The Musical, Hairspray) and Lucie Jones (The X Factor, Legally Blonde The Musical, Les Miserables), this is a rare chance to experience the searing emotion and breath-taking thrills of one of the all-time great musicals.
