Jonathan Larson’s acclaimed Broadway hit Rent follows a year in the life of a group of penniless young artists and musicians on New York City’s Lower East Side, struggling to survive and create under the shadow of HIV/AIDS. Winner of the Tony Award for Best Musical and the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, this timeless and romantic story, based on Puccini’s La Bohème, is brought to vivid life through its modern rock score, including such favorites as “La Vie Bohème,” “What You Own” and the showstopper, “Seasons of Love.”

Based on journalist Mitch Albom’s real-life friendship with his favorite college professor, Tuesdays With Morrie chronicles the lessons Albom learns during visits while his mentor and friend is dying from Lou Gehrig’s disease, or ALS. The two delve into the themes of life, love, wealth, aging, dependence, peace and death. It’s through these weekly visits that Albom realizes just how much he still has to learn about values and priorities. Albom’s 1997 book by the same name has sold more than 14 million copies worldwide to date, was adapted into a successful film in 1999, and premiered as an off-Broadway play, written by Albom himself, in 2001.
