Brook Arts Center presents “Rent” in November


originally published: 09/19/2021

(BOUND BROOK, NJ) – The Brook Arts Center presents the Pulitzer Prize winner for Best Musical in 1996, To rent. Written by Jonathan Larson and made his Broadway debut 25 years ago, To rent will take place from November 12 to 21, 2021. Inspired by Puccini’s La Bohème, To rent follows a year in the life of a group of impoverished young artists and musicians struggling to survive and create on New York’s Lower East Side under the shadow of the HIV / AIDS epidemic of the early 1990s.

To rent is a dramatic yet uplifting story, using rock music to evoke the harsh, angry and terrifying reality of a world marked by drug addiction, suicide and AIDS, all underlined by a theme of hope. For a quarter of a century, the work of Jonathan Larson To rent inspired us to choose love over fear and live without regret. With its inspiring message of joy and yearning in the face of fear, this timeless celebration of friendship and creativity reminds us to measure our lives with the one thing that really matters: love.

The Media and Performance Collective and the Brook Arts Center produce To rent for the benefit of Club Serenity, a New Jersey nonprofit dedicated to providing recovery services to people addicted to alcohol and drugs.

Performances on Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 2 p.m. Adult tickets $ 30 and student / senior tickets $ 20.
