This spring, Garfield High School is proud to present Jonathan Larson’s groundbreaking rock-opera Rent. Set in New York city during the HIV crises of the 1990’s, Rent follows a year in the lives of Alphabet City’s bohemian residents as they struggle with issues of AIDS, sexuality, homelessness, and economic hardship. Although Rent deals with weighty and often controversial subject matter, its overall message is one of love, hope, and the triumph of the human spirit.
Garfield is the first high school in Washington State to perform perform Rent as it was originally intended, in its full and uncensored form.
