RENT

Laycock Street Community Theatre, North Gosford

Presented by Gosford Musical Society
It's about high drama, high-sheen angel wings, and all the soaring, emotional arcs and tear-jerking lows of a year in the bohemian life of broke artists in New York. All set to reverberating rock guitar, of course.

Ended on Friday, 3 March 2023

Choreographer Lauren Miller

Rent is a musical with music, lyrics, and book by Jonathan Larson. The musical is a rock opera retelling of Puccini's opera La Boheme, set in the East Village of New York City, during the height of the AIDS epidemic in the mid-1990s.

The musical follows the lives of a group of young artists, who are struggling to make ends meet while living in the gritty and impoverished neighborhood.
The characters include Mark, a filmmaker, Roger, a musician, Mimi, an exotic dancer, and Tom Collins, an HIV-positive computer science teacher. The musical deals with themes of love, loss, poverty, and acceptance.

The musical features a powerful and memorable rock-infused score, including popular songs such as "Seasons of Love," "La Vie Boheme," "I'll Cover You," and "What You Own." The performances are energetic and passionate, and the cast delivers strong performances.
The sets and costumes are fitting for the gritty and impoverished setting of the musical.

Rent is a classic and beloved musical that has been performed and adapted for stage, film, and television.
The musical deals with heavy themes in a way that is accessible and relatable to audiences of all ages and backgrounds. The musical is set in a variety of locations including the East Village of New York City, and it's filled with memorable music, dance, and a powerful story that will stay with the audience long after the curtain falls.
