“There’s only now, there’s only here. Give in to love, or live in fear. No other course, no other way. No day but today.”

Winner of the Tony Award for Best Musical and the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, 

RENT follows a year in the lives of a diverse group of artists, musicians and their friends struggling to survive and create in New York’s Lower East Side. RENT is a groundbreaking musical about falling in love, following your dreams, and finding your voice.

La Vie Boheme! Come celebrate with us the iconic musical that shaped a generation of audiences, inspired us all to choose love over fear, encouraged us to live without regret and taught us to measure our lives in love.

Cautions: Strong language. Adult themes.

During the run of RENT, Niagara University Theatre will be accepting donations to Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS. Please consider giving your contribution to one of our Red Bucket Brigade cast or crew members after the show on your way out of the theatre. Your donation will provide healthy meals, lifesaving medication and critical support to people in need and in crisis. Thank you!
