PAC Performance Review – RENT

(New Philadelphia, Ohio) – “I was surprised by the progressive nature of it being brought to New Philadelphia.” 

A show that surprised a local crowd and left them talking and wanting more! On Thursday, January 24th, Gabby Lute and her daughter Sophia made a trip, not more than 20 minutes from home, to see a Broadway show! Gabby explained she was wowed by how progressive the performance was and she applauded the Performing Arts Center at Kent State University at Tuscarawas for bringing such a powerful performance to a small town. “I give a thumbs up to the Performing Arts Center in my book because we don’t see a lot of that around here,” she added.

Gabby explained that while progressive, she felt it brought numerous valuable lessons to her daughter.

About the Performance:

RENT

In 1996, an original rock musical by a little-known composer opened on Broadway… and forever changed the landscape of American theatre. Two decades later, Jonathan Larson’s RENT continues to speak loudly and defiantly to audiences across generations and all over the world. And now, this Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award®-winning masterpiece returns to the stage in a vibrant 20th anniversary touring production. 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.
