"Rent has single-handedly reinvigorated Broadway and taken America by storm. Sweeping all major theater awards, including the 1996 Pulitzer Prize for drama, as well as four 1996 Tony Awards including Best Musical, Best Book, and Best Score for a Musical, Rent captured the heart and spirit of a generation. Now, Rent comes to life on the page--through color photographs, the full libretto, and a behind-the-scenes oral history of the show's creation, told in the voices of the talent behind its success: the actors, the director, the producers, and the librettist and composer himself, Jonathan Larson, whose sudden death, on the eve of the first performance, made Rent's life-affirming message all the more poignant."--Publisher's description
