Rent: School Edition

The characters of Rent are, variously, musicians, filmmakers, performance artists, and other creative types, but, coincidentally enough, they all sure can sing. Exuberant songs such as “Tango: Maureen” and “Seasons of Love” helped win the play a Tony Award for Best Musical upon its debut. Meanwhile, the tangled stories of its bohemian Lower East Siders circa 1980 nabbed a Pulitzer Prize for Drama, and the script’s refusal to tell what happened after the last act kept crowds coming back to Broadway for 12 years.

As the characters struggle against a former friend and current landlord for the right to live rent-free, they navigate young love, LGBT issues, and the dilemma of financial stability versus artistic integrity. Jonathan Larson’s script takes Puccini’s classic opera La Boheme and replaces tuberculosis with AIDS and addiction, which add urgency to his characters’ quest to make a meaningful mark on the world. The school edition preserves the play’s substance and all but one of its songs, making an age-appropriate but still edgy show for teen audiences.

Cameo Theatre

An Egyptian art-deco style anchors the Cameo Theatre, luring wandering eyes with polychrome accents, gilt columns, and a sphinx that permits entry only after guests solve a riddle. A surviving artifact of the 1940s, the theater first opened as a home for vaudeville acts and movies but has since filled its stage with a diverse roster of legendary performers from B.B. King to Metallica, and it now regularly hosts theatrical productions.

Great show and the way it is set up, everyone has a close seat to the stage! Only issue - it's 2 hours long including intermission, so make sure your kids are well rested... if they have short attention spans, this may not be for you. Otherwise, you will enjoy it!
