The musical, "Rent," is about a group of friends that are affected by the AIDS epidemic in New York. It shows how the group of friends changes and evolves over time throughout the show.

The group of people in the show come together to find their voices and create a community where they can foster their talents. It s about people connecting and trying to create something new. Another major theme in the show is love.

This show is a very important show because it covers edgy topics such as the AIDS crisis in America. It shows us characters that are real, and people can easily relate to them. It depicts characters with AIDS who are going through the dilemmas of having AIDS as real people. It shows how these people get through it and how they can be ostracized by family, friends, and society.

Rent brings the topic of AIDS to a wider audience and shows people how the victims live with it. It additionally lets people with AIDS know that there are others like them and that they are not alone.

It is important for students to see the show because it is valuable for them to see and experience as many forms of art as possible to add to their education. It is also a great chance for people who don't have a background in musical theater to see a show that is very important to society due to its important themes.

Rent features a collaboration of Hartt school students where they are working together to put together a great show.

The show Rent has won the Tony Award for Best Musical and the Pulitzer Prize.

Rent will be performed in Milllard Auditorium on Thursday March 5th through Saturday March 7th at 730 pm and Sunday March 8th at 3pm. Tickets can be bought at the Box Office in Lincoln Theater, by calling 860-768-4228, or online at https://app.arts-people.com/index.php?ticketing=uoh01.
