Rent is one of the longest running musicals to have ever graced the stage on Broadway. When a production has the sort of appeal that Rent does, it makes you wonder what factors contributed to making it such a hit.
Big City Living
One of the most enduring qualities of Rent is that its characters are real, relatable, and powerful. The audience laughs and cries with them; shares in both their joys and their miseries. The East Village in New York City is teeming with energy and promise, but it is also a hard world.
Add to that the fact that many are struggling with the ongoing HIV/AIDS epidemic and you get a sense of the times that the characters are living through.
Broadway’s Crown Jewel
Rent first opened on Broadway back in 1996. Since then, the production, which features music and lyrics by Jonathan Larson, has been showered with critical acclaim and success.
Over the course of its run, Rent won numerous awards, and was nominated for many more. One of the awards to its name is the prestigious Tony Award for Best Musical.
Rent played its final show on Broadway in 2008. Since then, the musical has been touring relentlessly.
