Lessons of Love and Loss Presented by MCCC Theatre Students in "Rent"
With its enduring lessons of love, loss and living life to the fullest, the groundbreaking rock opera, "Rent," will be performed by MCCC Theatre students and community actors April 9 through 18. "The show will be grittier and less colorful than the Broadway production," says faculty member Jody Person. "We want to capture the atmosphere of the artistic scene in the East Village at that time." The show's essential message of love, as seen through the eyes of the character Angel, will remain at the forefront.
