SYNOPSIS: This revolutionary rock opera that changed the face of Broadway tells the story of a group of young bohemians struggling to live and pay their rent. “Measuring their lives in love,” these starving artists strive for success and acceptance while enduring the obstacles of poverty, illness and the AIDS epidemic. This staging of RENT will be presented in a 360-degrees multimedia theatrical experience unlike anything ever seen in London, directed by two-time Brickenden award winning director Dariusz Korbiel, and staged in one of London’s Hottest clubs, Lavish.
