Jonathan Larson’s tour de force musical Rent celebrates its 20th anniversary this year, as it continues to offer an inspiring message of hope and friendship. Rent won the Pulitzer Prize, 4 Tony Awards and 6 Drama Desk Awards. This rock musical loosely based on Giacomo Puccini’s opera La Bohème, tells the story of a group of impoverished young artists struggling to survive and create a life in New York City’s East Village in the thriving days of Bohemian Alphabet City, under the shadow of HIV/AIDS.

Fox has announced the official air date for Rent Live! would be Sunday, January 27, 2019. Marc Platt (“Grease: Live,” “La La Land,” “Wicked”) is set to serve as executive producer along with the estate of Jonathan Larson. Now the role that won Adam Pascal a Theatre World award is being sought.

“Rent” originally was produced in New York by New York Theatre Workshop and on Broadway by Jeffrey Seller, Kevin McCollum, Allan S. Gordon and New York Theatre Workshop.

Besides Marc Platt producing Adam Siegel, Julie Larson (sister of the late composer), and her father Al, as well as Vince Totino, Scott Hemming, and Marla Levin of Revolution Studios join in.

“So You Think You Can Dance” winner of the show’s fifteenth season will also receive a spot in Fox’s upcoming production of Rent Live!
