Alan Mingo, director

RENT was originally produced in New York by New York Theatre Workshop and on Broadway by Jeffrey Seller, Kevin McCollum, Allan S. Gordon and New York Theatre Workshop

The University of Maryland School of Theatre, Dance, and Performance Studies is proud to present Jonathan Larson's Pulitzer Prize-winning Broadway musical, RENT. Based loosely on Puccini's La Bohème but with a rock-inspired zest all its own, RENT follows a year in the lives of seven impoverished young artists and musicians in New York. Living the disappearing Bohemian lifestyle in the East Village, they struggle to survive and create while dealing with the physical and emotional complications of the AIDS epidemic.

UMD's student performers, who themselves anticipate a life in the arts, will draw on their own hopes, dreams and creative energies to bring RENT to raucous life on our stage. UMD alumnus Alan Mingo, who played Tom Collins in the Broadway production of RENT, returns to Maryland to direct.
