"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

This film captures the last Broadway performance of the long running rock musical RENT. Loosely based on Puccini's opera "La Bohème," it tells the story of a group of impoverished young artists and musicians struggling to survive and create in New York's Lower East Side in the thriving days of Bohemian Alphabet City, under the shadow of HIV/AIDS. Roommates, friends, lovers, at times enemies, the struggles of documentary filmmaker Mark, musician Roger, dancer Mimi, performance artist Maureen, public interest lawyer Joanne, teacher/anarchist Tom Collins and his drag queen lover Angel, with their sell-out landlord Benjamin "Benny" Coffin III revolve around the rent. As a year unfolds, they face a host of personal trials and begin coming to terms with the limits of their aspirations and relationships
