Will You Light My Candle?
One of my most favorite Broadway shows ever is coming to The National Theatre!
Yes, it’s the Rent 20th Anniversary Tour! I’ve seen this show on tour twice–once during college and once in my mid-20s. As much as I enjoy belting out the songs from the show, seeing it live is a completely mesmerizing experience.
While Jonathan Larson’s show is set in 90s, many of the songs and issues in RENT are still relevant today.
In 1996, an original rock musical by a little-known composer opened on Broadway… and forever changed the landscape 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. Now, this Pulitzer and Tony Award-winning masterpiece returns to the stage in a vibrant 20th anniversary touring production. A reimagining of Puccini’s La Bohème, RENT follows an unforgettable year in the lives of seven artists struggling to follow their dreams without selling out. With its inspiring message of joy and hope in the face of fear, this timeless celebration of friendship and creativity reminds us to measure our lives with the only thing that truly matters — love.
You’ve probably heard the song “Seasons of Love” from the show.
