Pride Corpus Christi is thrilled to promote a community organized event that embodies the spirit of diversity and creativity – the timeless musical, Rent. Set in the East Village of New York City, Rent is a testament to the power of love, self-expression, and resilience in the face of adversity. As part of the Pride Month celebrations, we encourage everyone to partake in this immersive experience, embracing the richness of LGBTQIA+ narratives.
An esteemed winner of the Tony Award for Best Musical and the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, Rent has emerged as a pop cultural phenomenon. Its soul-stirring music and universally resonant story continue to captivate audiences of all ages.
Loosely based on Puccini’s La Boheme, Jonathan Larson’s Rent chronicles a year in the lives of a group of impoverished young artists and musicians striving to survive and create under the specter of HIV/AIDS in New York’s Lower East Side. The play beautifully illustrates the trials and tribulations of Roger, Mimi, Tom, and Angel as they navigate life, love, and their artistic aspirations amidst the physical and emotional complications of the disease.
In this vibrant portrayal of Bohemian life, you’ll also meet Maureen, who uses performance art to grapple with her chronic infidelity, and her partner Joanne, who is constantly questioning the worth of their tumultuous relationship. Then there’s Benny, who has abandoned his Bohemian principles for a comfortable income, creating a rift with his old friends. Lastly, there’s Mark, an aspiring filmmaker, who feels disconnected from life in general.
Run Time: 2 hours, 30 minutes with one 15-minute intermission
Tickets: $20 each
