RENT: Live on Broadway is the filmed version of the extraordinarily popular American musical Rent. Produced in conjunction with the closing of the 12-year run of the original Broadway production, the film features a special reprise of the hit song "Seasons of Love" which features many members of the original cast and cast members throughout the entire run of the show. Set in the East Village neighborhood of New York City in the early 1990's, the show tells the story of a group of Bohemians trying to live their lives despite poverty, drug addictions, illness, and AIDS. With a cast of characters that include Mark, a struggling filmmaker, Angel, a transvestite, Mimi, an exotic dancer with a drug addiction, and Roger, an up and coming musician, Rent shows the hope that endures through every day struggles. The original production won four Tony awards and the Pulitzer Prize and is in the Guinness book of world records as the 7th longest running Broadway musical in history.
