Don’t Miss The Return Of RENT
Presented by Showtime Management, this celebratory one-night concert features the much-loved, iconic and popular numbers from the stage production of RENT, including Seasons of Love, Out Tonight, Without You, Will I and Take Me Or Leave Me, and will be performed by the original South African cast, who’ll be reuniting especially for this concert, with all proceeds going to charity.
Based loosely on Puccini’s La Boheme, the musical follows a year in the life of a group of impoverished friends struggling to make it in New York’s East City Village, as they battle with relationships, drugs, loss, love, creativity, HIV/AIDS and paying their “rent”. This concert version presents the entire score sung and performed with minimal staging. It’s all about the music, the songs and the strength of the beautiful voices that will have audiences singing along or sitting mesmerised, longing for more.
What started as a lighthearted Facebook chat about getting together for the 10th Anniversary of RENT is now becoming a reality. Hazel Feldman and Tony Feldman of Showtime Management, the original producers of RENT, are lending their full support to RENT in concert, and Montecasino, the concert host, is providing the Teatro as the concert venue. Technical companies Gearhouse Splitbeam, ProSound and Computicket have donated their services while Music Theatre International New York and the Jonathan Larson Estate have decided to waiver their performance royalties.
Tickets for this one-night-only concert are limited, so book at Computicket as soon as possible. #RentConcertSA
