RENT, the award-winning, electrifying musical comes to life in an emotionally-charged new production, is headed to Seattle’s 5th Avenue Theatre, and is featuring a cast of Seattle’s most thrilling young stars!

Fresh from his smash success with First Date, Bill Berry directs this electrifying new staging of Jonathan Larson’s modern rock-opera classic. See a cast of Seattle’s young rising theater stars, featuring Daniel Berryman, Aaron C. Finley, Naomi Morgan, Jerick Hoffer, Ryah Nixon, and Andi Alhadeff.

You’ll hear all the RENT hits including “La Vie Boheme,” “Take Me or Leave Me,” “One Song Glory,” and of course, “Rent.” Set during the height of the AIDS epidemic, RENT is the electrifying tale of impoverished young artists struggling to survive while living in New York’s East Village. Based on the Puccini opera La bohème, the hit musical premiered in 1996 to instant acclaim, and swept a host of theater awards — the Tony, the Obie, and the Pulitzer.

Rent will run from Thursday, July 26 through Sunday, August 19. Tickets start at $29.00/person and are available online at http://www.5thavenue.org or through the box office at 206.625.1900. Tickets may also be purchased at 888.5TH.4TIX.

The 5th Avenue Theatre is located at:
1308 5th Avenue
Seattle, WA 98101
