RENT returns to Ruth Eckerd Hall for the first time since 2008 with two performances to celebrate the 20th Anniversary! In 1996, an original rock musical by a little-known composer opened on Broadway… and forever changed the landscape of American theatre. Two decades later, Jonathan Larson’s RENT continues to speak loudly and defiantly to audiences across generations and all over the world. And now, this Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award®-winning masterpiece returns to the stage in a vibrant 20th anniversary touring production. A re-imagining of Puccini’s La Bohème, RENT follows an unforgettable year in the lives of seven artists struggling to follow their dreams without selling out. With its inspiring message of joy and hope in the face of fear, this timeless celebration of friendship and creativity reminds us to measure our lives with the only thing that truly matters—love.
Tickets are *$150, $100, $75, $50, and $35.*$150 Pre-show Party Package includes a premium seat, access to party lounge including high-end appetizers, dessert & coffee, plus one beer, wine or soda, beginning 2 hours prior to show time. Artist does not appear at party.
Lottery Information: seats in the first rows of the orchestra section will be available for $27.50 for every performance of RENT, the Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award®-winning musical. The $27.50 tickets are available for in-person purchases at the Ruth Eckerd Hall Ticket Office, located at 1111 N. McMullen Booth Road, on the day of each performance only, two hours prior to the show. The $27.50 tickets are limited to two tickets per person.
The tradition of these tickets began in 1996 in New York when the show moved to Broadway after a sold-out run in a small downtown theatre. The producers of the show are committed to continuing the tradition of offering these orchestra seats in each city the show will play.
RENT performs at Ruth Eckerd Hall on Thursday, April 11 and Friday, April 12. Both performances are at 8 pm.
