The Lied Center is a national leader in presenting artists and collaborations normally seen only in the country’s major metropolitan centers, such as New York, Chicago and Los Angeles. In recent seasons, the Lied Center has served as the venue where Yo-Yo Ma filmed a portion of his 2015 documentary “The Music of Strangers,” American Ballet Theatre collaborated for the first time with the St. Louis Symphony, and the Chicago Symphony performed on tour with Conductor Jaap van Zweden – recently appointed as Music Director of the New York Philharmonic.
Now, stand-by as Rent takes the stage once more—now, on its 20th anniversary tour.
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. 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.
