[NoHo Arts District, CA] Los Angeles Pierce College Theatre will conclude its 2022-2023 Season with Jonathan Larson’s musical phenomenon Rent from May 5-14.
Set in Manhattan in the 1990s and inspired by Puccini’s opera La Bohème, the ground-breaking musical by Jonathan Larson follows a group of young East Village artists, performers and philosophers as they struggle through the hardships of poverty, societal discord and the AIDS epidemic in the search for life, love and art. Winner of the Tony Award for Best Musical and the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, and with a song list that includes the iconic Seasons of Love, Rent tells a story as relevant today as when it took Broadway by storm more than 25 years ago.

The cast features Dale Van Slyke as Mark, Kevin Boecher as Roger, Emelysse Paez as Mimi, Aro Caitlin as Tom, Aaron Revilla as Angel, Michelle Johnson as Maureen, Kaitlyn Foley as Joanne and Emmanuel Odaibo as Benny. The ensemble includes Garret Sullivan, Gabriel Pitpitan, Ali Suliman, Andrew Tafur, Jenny Moses, Sammi Kayne, Alany Soils-Coleman, Maya Palacios and Adam Derbigny.
