The producers of RENT’s 25th anniversary farewell tour announced today that single tickets for the tour’s upcoming New Orleans engagement are on sale now.
For a quarter of a century, Jonathan Larson’s RENT has encouraged us to choose love over fear and to live without regret. This Tony Award-winning, Pulitzer-Prize-winning phenomenon follows a year in the life of a diverse group of artists and friends who struggle to pursue their dreams without selling themselves. It has become more than a musical – it is a cultural touchstone, a rite of passage and a source of joy and strength for millions of people. RENT has become a part of us forever.

Friday November 26: 1 p.m. & 8 p.m.
Saturday November 27: 1 p.m. & 8 p.m.

“It is an honor that RENT’s 25th anniversary farewell tour is taking place at the Saenger Theater after a long-awaited return to the theater,” said Saenger Theater General Manager David Skinner. âI am delighted to welcome New Orleans theatergoers back to the Saenger to enjoy this award-winning masterpiece. I can’t wait to see the community experience live entertainment again as we return to the events and in-person performances.
The show premiered on Broadway at the New York Theater Workshop on February 13, 1996 to ecstatic reviews and moved to Broadway on April 29, 1996. RENT won the 1996 Tony Award for Best Musical as well as the Pulitzer Prize for the drama.
