A ROCK opera inspired by Puccini's La Boheme opens this week at the Broadway Studio.
Jonathan Larson's Pulitzer Prize-winning Rent, about a group of New York bohemians 'measuring their lives in love' is at the Catford theatre until May 17.
A group of friends strive for success and acceptance while enduring the obstacles of poverty, illness and the AIDS epidemic. The musical won the 1996 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, the Obie Award, the New York Drama Critics Circle Award, four Tony Awards and three Drama Desk awards - all following the tragic, untimely death of its creator who passed away of an aortic aneurysm on the eve of the play's first preview. This new production is directed by Thom Southerland whose recent productions at the Studio have included Oklahoma and Mack and Mabel. Tickets are £13.50 (£10 concessions) on evenings from Thursday to Saturday and Sunday or £10 (£8 concessions) for Wednesday evening and Thursday matinee.
