Opera Western Reserve, the Henry H. Stambaugh Auditorium Association, the Youngstown Playhouse, and the Youngstown Symphony Society will present the Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning rock musical Rent in the Edwards W. Powers Auditorium at The DeYor Performing Arts Center. The production will run April 27, 28, 29, and 30, 2023, directed by Mr. Matthew Mazuroski, Associate Professor of Acting & Directing in the Cliffe College of Creative Arts at Youngstown State University.
Written by Jonathan Larson, the iconic musical, Rent is set at the height of the 1990s HIV/AIDS epidemic in East Side New York City. The story follows a group of young artists and musicians struggling to survive and create, as they find the ability to stay positive while facing the obstacles of sickness, poverty, and death. RENT has bridged generational gaps teaching audiences of all ages to measure our life in love.
