New production photographs have been released for the new cast of the 20th Anniversary Production of Jonathan Larson’s RENT which is currently undergoing a second tour of the UK.
Set in the East Village of New York City, RENT is about falling in love, finding your voice and living for today. Winner of the Tony Award for Best Musical and the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, this musical has become a pop cultural phenomenon with songs that rock and a story that resonates with audiences of all ages. Based loosely on Puccini’s La Boheme, the show follows a year in the life of a group of friends struggling to make it in the big city under the shadow of HIV/AIDS.
Leading the cast is Atomic Kitten Natasha Hamilton (Maureen) and Rory Taylor (Roger) last seen in Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Jesus Christ Superstar. They will be joined by Rachel Johns(Mimi), Paul Ayres (Mark), Hannah Levene (Joanne), Ian Stroughair (Angel), Leon Lopez (Collins), Neil Moors (Benny) and ensemble members; Tim Prottey Jones, Joel Harper-Jackson, David Hinton-Gale, Beth Humphries, Katie Bernstein.
RENT – 20th Anniversary Concert Tour is produced by Daniel Wood for JP Productions.
