Fiddlehead Celebrates 'Rent's' 20th Anniversary

Wednesday Jan 27, 2016

Fiddlehead Theatre Company will present a 20th Anniversary celebration of the hit Broadway sensation "RENT" live on stage from February 5-21, 2016 at the Back Bay Events Center -- 180 Berkeley Street Boston.

Set in the East Village of New York City, "RENT" is about falling in love, finding your voice and living for today. Winner of the TONY Award® for Best Musical and the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, Jonathan Larson's "RENT" has become a pop cultural phenomenon with songs that rock and a story that resonates to this day. "RENT" will be Directed by Stacey Stephens, Choreographed by Wendy Hall, and accompanied by a five-piece band under the direction of Nathan Urdangen.

Loosely based on Giacomo Puccini's opera La Boheme, "RENT" takes an intimate journey through a single year in the lives of a group of impoverished young artists and friends struggling to survive and create a life in New York City's East Village. With music by three-time Tony winner Jonathan Larson, this moving tale will capture your heart and remind you that there is "no day but today." Songs include "Seasons of Love," "Rent," and "We're Okay." Don't miss the unforgettable experience that will run from Feb 5 - Feb 21, 2016.

Fiddlehead Theatre Company will conclude its 21st season with the classic musical "Show Boat" at the Citi Performing Arts Center Shubert Theater, 265 Tremont Street, Boston, from June 23 - July 2, 2016.
