RENT, The Musical  OPENS FRIDAY! Runs through November 21. Get Tickets Early for Best Seats!





The Brook Arts Center presents the Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize-winning phenomenon RENT. Set in the East Village of New York City, RENT is about falling in love, finding your voice, and living for today. This is theatre at its best—exuberant, passionate, and joyous. RENT is a pop-cultural sensation with songs that rock and a story that resonates with audiences of all ages.

Based loosely on Puccini's La Boheme, Jonathan Larson's RENT follows a year in the life of a group of impoverished young artists and musicians struggling to survive and create in New York's Lower East Side, under the shadow of the HIV/AIDS epidemic. How these young artists negotiate their dreams, loves and conflicts provides the narrative thread to this groundbreaking musical.

For a quarter of a century, Jonathan Larson’s RENT has inspired us to choose love over fear and to live without regret. With its inspiring message of joy and aspiration in the face of fear, this timeless celebration of friendship and creativity reminds us to measure our lives with the only thing that truly matters—love.

The Media and Performance Collective and Brook Arts Center are producing RENT to benefit Club Serenity, a New Jersey non-profit organization dedicated to providing recovery services to those addicted to alcohol and drugs. 

WHEN: Performances Fridays & Saturdays at 8 pm and Sundays at 2:00 pm.
