'Rent' returns off-Broadway

Less than three years after it finished its 12-year run of 5,124 performances, Rent is set to return to the New York theater scene. Producers Jeffrey Seller, Kevin McCollum, and Allan S. Gordon have announced a new off-Broadway production that will open August 11 at New World Stages. Michael Grief, who directed the show’s original off-Broadway and Broadway productions, is back, and casting begins this March. Previews are scheduled to begin July 14.

  • really?

    what’s the point of a NEW production with the OLD director?

      Essentially it’s an off-Broadway remount, scaled down a bit, following the trend set by Avenue Q and 39 Steps. Turns out producers are realizing that opened-ended runs of niche shows in smaller venues can actually make money. Who’da thunk?

    Just keep the original cast away. They were good 15 years ago, but are now too old for the parts.

    I don’t really get this show, it might have one of the worst endings of a play ever.

    The carpark fund is rellay going well and I hope the village soon begin to realise what fantastic amenities the village hall and social club already are and with a properly drained and surfaced car park we will have, I believe one of the best facilities in Norfolk. Many thanks again to the School of Dancing and a big thank you to the Watlington PlayersWell doneCyril Pike
