The award-winning Western Michigan University Department of Theatre electrifies audiences with critically acclaimed student performances ranging from lighthearted tap-dancing musicals to the epic sagas of Shakespeare. This performance of Jonathan Larson's Tony award-winning musical Rent dives headfirst into the lives of a group of young bohemians in New York City, living with the realities of AIDS, homelessness, and drug addiction.
A hundred percent student performed, and directed by WMU faculty member Jay Berkow, this rock opera celebrates life with such memorable songs as "Seasons of Love" and show-stopping dance moves such as the rent-check bounce and the squatter's shuffle. Soloist supporters can feast their ears on the up-and-coming talent that regularly comes through WMU's theater program, which has helped numerous alumni develop the skills needed to succeed on Broadway stages and popular television shows such as How I Met Your Mother and ER.
The Gilmore Theatre Complex is conveniently located down the street from downtown Kalamazoo, where theater addicts can find preshow nourishment at a variety of fine restaurants and subdue postshow hysterics with a welcome drink.
Students, senior citizens, and WMU faculty and staff already receive ticket discounts. This Groupon still offers the best deal for all aforementioned groups except students, who can pick up a ticket for $5 with a valid student ID.
