THE TWENTIETH ANNIVERSARY TOUR OF “RENT”
TO BE CELEBRATED AT THE BROWARD CENTER
In 1996, an original rock musical by a little-known composer opened on Broadway...and forever changed the recognition of American Theatre. Two decades later, Jonathan Larson’s “RENT” continues to speak loudly and defiantly to audiences across generations and all over the world.
And now, this Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning masterpiece returns to the stage in a vibrant 20th anniversary touring production. A re-imagining of Puccini’s La Bohème's, “Rent” follows an unforgettable year in the lives of seven artists living in Manhattan’s East Village, struggling to follow their dreams without selling out.
With its inspiring message of joy and hope in the face of fear with such health problems as HIV/Aids, this timeless celebration of friendship and creativity reminds us to measure our lives with the only thing that truly matters—Love.
Broward Center has just announced that seats in the first two rows of the orchestra section, of the Au-Rene Theatre, will be available for $25 for every performance of “Rent.” The $25 tickets are available for in-person purchases at the box office located at 201 SW Fifth Avenue, Fort Lauderdale, on the day of each performance only, two hours before the show.
The tickets must be paid for with cash only, and are limited to two tickets per person. This “Rent” tradition began in 1996 in New York and the Producers are committed to continuing the tradition of offering these orchestra seats in each city the show plays.
The show will run from October 7 through 9, 2016, evenings at 8 p.m. matinees 2 p.m. except Sunday 1 and 6:30- p.m. Other tickets are on sale now starting at $35. For more information call 954-462-0222. Orders of 10 or more call 954-660-6307.
