Slow Burn Theatre continues it’s stellar SIXTH season with the South Florida professional premiere of the Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize winning musical Rent. Based loosely on Puccini’s La Boheme, Jonathan Larson’s Rent follows a year in the life of a group of impoverished young artists and musicians struggling to survive and create in New York’s Lower East Side, under the shadow of HIV/AIDS.

The physical and emotional complications of the disease pervade the lives of Roger, Mimi, Tom, and Angel. Maureen deals with her chronic infidelity through performance art; her partner, Joanne, wonders if their relationship is worth the trouble. Benny has sold out his Bohemian ideals in exchange for a hefty income and is on the outs with his former friends. Mark, an aspiring filmmaker, feels like an outsider to life in general. How these young bohemians negotiate their dreams, loves, and conflicts provides the narrative thread to this groundbreaking musical.

Rent will be appearing April 9 – 16, 2015 at the West Boca Performing Arts Theatre located at 12811 Glades Rd., Boca Raton, FL.  Slow Burn Theatre is committed to being a locally-based professional theatre company, providing the South Florida community with daring, contemporary, and intelligent works at an affordable price.
