Popejoy Hall

Before Lin-Manuel Miranda’s “Hamilton” changed our perception of what a Broadway musical could be, Jonathan Larson did the same with “Rent.” The 20th anniversary tour is an opportunity to see an important piece of theater history which tells the 20th century story of artists, lovers and dreamers grappling with homelessness, addiction and the spread of AIDS.

$25 front-row tickets are available 2 hours prior to showtime on a first-come-first served basis for all showings.
