RENT is a rock musical with the lyrics and music written by Jonathan Larson. RENT is based on Giacomo Puccini's opera La Boheme. RENT tells the story of impoverished young artists and musicians that are struggling to survive and create in New York's Lower East Side in the days of Bohemian Alphabet City under the shadows of HIV/AIDS.
My first experience with live theater and "Oklahoma" was when I was in the 5th or 6th grade? Then, I saw the movie with Gordon MacRae and Shirley Jones. My Mom's family was from Oklahoma and I visited there many times growing up...where the wind comes sweepin' down the plain! I love Oklahoma!
"A musical based on the New York City newsboy strike of 1899. When young newspaper sellers are exploited beyond reason by their bosses they set out to enact change and are meet by the ruthlessness of big business." One of my best *happy* song is "Seize the Day" from Newsies.
