Plot Synopsis

Based on the 1996 musical "Rent," which is a re-imagining of Puccini's "La Boheme," RENT: LIVE is a three-hour musical set in New York City's gritty East Village that tells the unforgettable story of seven artists struggling to follow their dreams during a time of great social and political turmoil. The television adaptation is broadcast from the historic Fox Studios in Los Angeles, where Tony Award-nominated director Michael Greif, who directed the original New York Theatre Workshop and Broadway productions of "Rent," is the director overseeing the stage direction. In addition to Greif, creative team members from the original Broadway production of "Rent" returning for the television adaptation include Emmy Award-winning casting director Bernie Telsey and costume designer Angela Wendt.
