RENT makes its way to the Ford Theater

Posted: Friday, November 16, 2018

A performance of RENT, the Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning landmark rock musical, will take place at the Honeywell Center on Sunday, December 9 at 3 p.m. in the Ford Theater. Ticket prices are $58 and $46.

“For the past 20 years, RENT has touched the lives of audiences around the world from Broadway to regional productions to high school auditoriums,” notes producer Stephen Gabriel. “We’re thrilled to introduce a new generation to this timeless story of love, friendship and community.”

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.

The show received its world premiere off-Broadway at New York Theatre Workshop on February 13, 1996, to ecstatic reviews and transferred to Broadway on April 29, 1996. Written by Jonathan Larson, RENT is winner of the 1996 Tony Award for Best Musical as well as the Pulitzer Prize for Drama. It is one of only five musicals to win both awards.

Tickets may be purchased online at or by calling the Honeywell Foundation Box Office at (260) 563-1102.
