Set in the East Village of New York City, Rent is about falling in love, finding your voice and living for today.

This is theatre at its best – exuberant, passionate and joyous.

“This was one of the best shows I’ve seen. In five hundred twenty five thousand six hundred minutes you’ll still be talking about this show!” –

Rent contains mature thematic material involving drugs and sexuality and some strong language. Parental guidance is advised.

Theatre Director Jo Johnson said: “It’s thrilling that we’re able to host a concert version of Tyne Theatre Porductions’ RENT, after the full production went down so well with our audiences. It’s a very talented cast and we can’t wait to welcome people back to listen to this new version.”
