Twenty years to the day after the first preview of now-iconic musical RENT was performed Off-Broadway, Seasons of Larson celebrates the extraordinary life and work of its composer.
On 25 January 1996 the soon-to-be musical phenomenon RENT previewed Off-Broadway. That same day the musical’s composer Jonathan Larson died suddenly at the age of just thirty-five.
RENT played on Broadway for twelve years, has been produced in countries across the globe (including a film version) and inspired a generation of performers. It also won its supremely talented composer the 1996 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and the 1996 Tony Award for Best Musical, both awards being received posthumously.
In a tremendous one-night-only concert event in London, Seasons of Larson will see an incredible cast of West End performers unite to examine Larson’s prodigious musical legacy.
Debbie Kurup, Krysten Cummings and Damien Flood, all previous cast members of Larson’s hit rock musical Rent, will perform some of his most iconic and lesser known numbers, and reflect on their memories of the show.
Directed by Hannah Chissick (Marry Me a Little, Abigail’s Party, Grumpy Old Women Live) and playing for a single night at the Lyric Theatre on 25 January 2016, book your tickets for Seasons of Larson today.
