Music Theatre

RENT

Presented by Brisbane Powerhouse and Matt Ward Entertainment

–NEW SHOWS ADDED!–

Raw, sexy and dangerous, this 20th anniversary production strips RENT back to its off-broadway roots. 

Queer culture came smashing onto the main stage with the Pulitzer Prize winning rock musical RENT, music & lyrics by Jonathan Larson, a visceral story of young artists in New York’s East Village whose dreams and heartbreak intertwine, painting a raw portrait of bohemians living in the shadow of HIV/AIDS.

Based loosely on Puccini’s La Boheme, RENT follows a year in the life of a group of friends struggling to make it in the big city.

How these young bohemians negotiate their dreams, loves, and conflicts provides the narrative thread to this groundbreaking musical.

This is musical theatre uncensored, uncut, unashamed and not to be missed!
