RENT is about a group of Bohemian artists struggling with love, success, and AIDS in the gritty East Village of New York City in the late '80s.

It follows the stories of eight individuals whose lives collide on one Christmas and who become a family over the course of a year.

There's Roger, a songwriter who shut himself off from the rest of the world after his girlfriend committed suicide upon learning that she was HIV-positive (Roger contracted the disease from her,) his new love, Mimi, an HIV-positive exotic dancer who is addicted to heroin, his roommate, Mark, a struggling filmmaker, Mark's ex-girlfriend, Maureen, who has left him for a lawyer named Joanne, Tom Collins, an HIV-positive college professor, Collins's lover, Angel, a transvestite with AIDS, and Benny, former roommate to Roger, Mark, Collins, and Maureen and now owner of the building.

Come along to watch the Diploma Course at Nate Butler’s Studio perform in this production of RENT.
