April 29, 2016 by Alyssa

Rent 20th Anniversary

It’s been a full two decades since Jonathan Larson’s seminal musical Rent made its debut on Broadway. To celebrate the landmark anniversary, it’s been confirmed that a national tour of the adored musical will be making its way to theaters around the country beginning in September and carrying over well into 2017.

Original Creative Team to Reunite for 20th Anniversary Rent Tour

As of April 29, the full cast for the Rent tour is still pending, but it’s been confirmed that several members of the original creative team will come together for the new production. Among the returning creatives are choreographer Marlies Yearby, costume designer Angela Wendt, and music supervisor Tim Weil. The show will be directed by Evan Ensign, who is perhaps best known for his direction and stage management work on Avenue Q, Hair, and Dream Girls. Ensign also served as a Resident Assistant Director for the original Broadway run of Rent.

Since making its Broadway debut on April 29, 1996, Rent has become one of the most beloved modern musicals. In addition to winning four Tony Awards (including Best Musical), six Drama Desk Awards (including Outstanding Musical), and the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, Rent was adapted into a popular 2005 film featuring original cast members Idina Menzel, Taye Diggs, Anthony Rapp, Jesse L. Martin, and Wilson Jermaine Heredia.
