BMCC presents: Rent

3rd May 2022 - 7th May 2022

Price: £15.00


Bristol Musical Comedy Club return to the Redgrave Theatre in May 2022 with the iconic RENT.  The rock musical phenomenon that defined a generation and paved the way for all contemporary musicals that followed.  Rent has book, music and lyrics by Jonathan Larson, whose talents you may recognise from the recent Netflix film ‘Tick, Tick… Boom!’ 

 

RENT tells the story of a group of young artists struggling to survive during the 1990s, while creating a life for themselves in Lower Manhattan's East Village.  Against this colourful backdrop of the thriving Bohemian Alphabet City, the characters explore their relationships under the shadow of the HIV/AIDS epidemic.

 

RENT was an overnight sensation on Broadway ultimately winning four Tony Awards, six Drama Desk Awards and the hugely prestigious Pulitzer Prize for Drama.  It ran on Broadway for an astonishing 12 years, though its opening night was tainted with sadness as composer Jonathan Larson died suddenly the night before its premier.  His amazing legacy lives on in this uplifting musical filled with unforgettable songs like Seasons of Love, Take Me or Leave Me, I’ll Cover You, Rent! and many more…

 

“There's only us, there's only this, forget regret, or life is your's to miss. 

No other path, no other way, No day but today…” RENT
