525,600 Reasons to Perform: RENT, Now Available for Licensing

rent_4c1Winner of nearly every major industry award, including the 1996 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and the 1996 Tony Award for Best Musical, RENT continues to be a cornerstone of modern American musical theatre.

RENT first opened at the off-Broadway, New York Theatre Workshop where it garnered a huge buzz.  The New York Times theater critic Ben Brantley called it an "exhilarating, landmark rock opera" with a "glittering, inventive score" that "shimmers with hope for the future of the American musical."

When the show's Broadway run ended in the fall of 2008, RENT became the 7th longest running musical in Broadway history after a staggering 12 years on the great white way.  During this time, RENT has also played in more than 200 productions worldwide, from Tokyo to Reykjavik to Little Rock to Boise.

RENT, THE BROADWAY TOUR is currently making its way across the U.S., and to find out more about where and when, visit the official site at http://www.siteforrent.com/tourschedule.

The popularity of RENT opened up the world of theatre to a whole new generation of audiences, while also creating a passionately loyal fan-base.  "RENT-heads" as they're known, originally referred to people who camped out at the Nederlander Theater for hours in advance to secure discounted $20 rush tickets to each show.  The term stuck and now a "RENT-head" refers to any dedicated fan obsessed with the show.
