Tri-C's Western Campus Production of 'Rent' Featured on 19 Action News
April 17, 2014
The Western Campus' production of Rent was featured on 19 Action News today. The video clip the station posted includes a performance by the cast.
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, Rent has become a pop-cultural phenomenon.
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 HIV/AIDS. The physical and emotional complications of the disease pervade the lives of Roger, Mimi, Tom, and Angel. How these young bohemians negotiate their dreams, loves, and conflicts provides the narrative thread to this groundbreaking musical.
The show runs at 8 p.m. today through Saturday at the Western Campus Theatre, 11000 Pleasant Valley Road, Parma. Tickets are $10 for general admission and $2 for Tri-C students. Call 216-987-5536 or log onto trictickets.com.
