VCDS presents “RENT”

This groundbreaking show reinvented musicals when it debuted in 1996. An inspiring story about friends & artists struggling in New York City’s East Village, Rent tackles addiction, poverty, AIDS, & most of all, how about love? With a score shifting easily between pounding rock numbers & pop-style ballads, Rent remains the quintessential rock musical.
