Redmond residents to pay ‘Rent’ a visit

April 27, 2013 by  

Theater lovers in Redmond are currently getting a chance to see performances of the classic story ‘Rent’, although they only have about another week to catch a glimpse of it.

The play tells of a group of friends trying to make it in a large city, and how these young people handle their conflicts, loves, and dreams as they move forward. A well-known presentation, the theater is likely to have been bedecked with poster printing during its run.

The audience will meet a filmmaker named Mark, his ex-girlfriend and performing artisan Maureen, a public lawyer named Joanne, Mark’s roommate and musician Roger, an exotic dancer named Mimi, and a computer guru named Tom Collins. This story introduces each character and narrates segments about their lives and how the group works out the various obstacles they encounter.

This story is based on the book and musical score of the same name, and was written by Jonathan Larson, although it is loosely based on Puccini’s La Boheme.

Tickets for this show cost $22 for military members, seniors, students, and educators with photo ID, while non-concessionary adults pay an additional $5. ‘Rent’ is being performed up until next Sunday, May 5th, at 8:00 pm on Thursdays – Sundays, with a matinee on Sundays at 2:00 pm.

The location is the SecondStory Repertory located at 16587 NE 74th Street in Redmond, Washington. To learn more about this performance, or to purchase tickets, please visit the SecondStory Repertory website or call the box office at 425-881-6777.
