Leicester’s Curve announces a production of Jonathan Larson’s RENT: The Concert, to be performed in the venue’s new, specially adapted auditorium.
Directed by Nikolai Foster, the era-defining, Pulitzer and Tony Award-winning rock musical is set to run from 10 to 21 August.
Inspired by Puccini’s classic opera La Bohème, RENT follows a year in the life of eight struggling young artists in New York’s Lower East Side as they attempt to navigate a world overshadowed by the HIV/AIDs pandemic, addiction, poverty and homophobia.
The musical’s fierce score includes “La Vie Bohème”, “Rent”, “Take Me or Leave Me” and “Seasons of Love”, plus many more sensational numbers.
The Curve is set to fully reopen on 1 July, in line with the government roadmap, with performances of Peter James’ Looking Good Dead, plus Resident Creatives New Work, Aakash Odedra’s Rising, Am Dram: A Musical Comedy and The Music of Andrew Lloyd Webber.
