Here, in vivid color photos, the complete libretto, original artwork, show artifacts, and oral history, "Rent" comes to life with the behind-the-scenes story of the show's creation.
The film Rent, based on the Tony -winning Broadway production, is a modern-day adaptation of the opera La Boheme.

In these pages, Rent offers what most theater books can't: a chance to step behind the curtain and feel the electricity of a stage phenomenon as it unfolds.

Now, for the first time, Rent comes to life on the page - through vivid color photographs, the full libretto, and a behind-the-scenes oral history of the show's creation.
