Winner of the 1996 Tony for best musical, Rent paints a vivid portrait of 1980s New York as it interweaves the struggles and triumphs of artists, addicts, and ne’er-do-wells living in the East Village during the height of the AIDS crisis. Well-known songs, including “La Vie Bohème” and “Seasons of Love,” frame the story’s comedy and tragedy as the characters try to make their mark on the world before succumbing to disease, addiction, or simply the temptations of bourgeois escape. The local cast sucks audiences into the kaleidoscopic narrative of the rock-updated take on Puccini’s La Bohème, rich with tumultuous romances, raucous protests, and the struggle to hold on to their apartment in the face of eviction and the difficulty of punctually paying rent when time jumps months between scenes.
Hingham Civic Music Theatre’s members and 21-person ensemble fully realize the production with period costumes and handmade sets. Since 1948, the company has given local theater aficionados the chance to practice their craft in fully staged productions of beloved works.
