We invite you to connect with AARP Wisconsin for special discounted matinee performances of “RENT: The 20th Anniversary Tour” for AARP members and their guests on Saturday, October 7 at 2:00 p.m. and Sunday, October 8 at 1:00 p.m. at the Marcus Center for the Performing Arts, 929 North Water St., Milwaukee.
In 1996, an original rock musical by a little-known composer opened on Broadway and forever changed the landscape of American theatre. Two decades later, Jonathan Larson’s RENT continues to speak loudly and defiantly to audiences across generations and all over the world.
This Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning masterpiece returns to the stage in a vibrant 20th anniversary touring production. A re-imagining of Puccini’s La Bohème, 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. The discounted prices for these performances are as follows:
–Center Orchestra (Rows L-T) – Regular price is $89. AARP discounted price is $59.
