CHICAGO – Broadway In Chicago and the RENT 20th Anniversary Tour are thrilled to announce rush tickets will be available for each performance of the Chicago engagement of RENT, the Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning musical, playing at the Oriental Theatre from May 9-14, 2017. These limited seats located in the first two rows of the orchestra section will be available for day-of purchase only. Rush seats must be purchased in-person at the Oriental Theatre box office (24 W Randolph) on a first-come-first-serve basis from the time the box office opens. All $25 tickets are available for cash-only purchase and are limited to two tickets per person.
RENT follows an unforgettable year in the lives of seven artists struggling to follow their dreams without selling out. With its inspiring message of joy and hope in the face of fear, this timeless celebration of friendship and creativity reminds us to measure our lives with the only thing that truly matters—love. Now, after two decades, Jonathan Larson’s RENT continues to speak loudly and defiantly to audiences across generations and all over the world.
Based on the original direction by Michael Greif (Tony and Drama Desk Nominations, RENT), Evan Ensign will restage this 20th anniversary tour. Marlies Yearby (Tony Nomination, RENT) will serve as choreographer.
The RENT 20th Anniversary Tour is produced by Work Light Productions, whose other touring productions include Cinderella, MAMMA MIA!, Irving Berlin’s White Christmas, Vocalosity, and Crazy For You. Visit www.rentontour.net for more information.
