We invite you to join us in reading and discussing RENT by Jonathan Larson. This musical, based on the opera La Bohème, follows a group of friends living in the Alphabet City in New York’s East Village. Even as they struggle with joblessness, addiction, and living with HIV, they return to each other for mutual support and inspiration for their art.
The discussion will be facilitated by two dramaturgs, Zach Marlin and Esther Terry. We will discuss the characters and themes of the play, as well as the play’s relevance to our own current experience of a newly devastating pandemic. Even though gathering to see theatre is currently impossible, the canon of great American theatre still lives on the page for us to read, contemplate, and discuss with one another.
