Rent will be returning to stages across the country in Fall 2016. The re-staged 20th anniversary tour will be based on the original direction by Michael Greif, which received a Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award. “For the past 20 years, Rent has touched the lives of audiences around the world from Broadway to regional productions to high school auditoriums,” producer Stephen Gabriel said in a statement. “We’re thrilled to introduce a new generation to this timeless story of love, friendship and community.” Rent tickets have always been at a premium, so expect this tour to be no different.

Rent features many fan-favorite songs including “Seasons of Love”, “Light My Candle”, “I’ll Cover You”, and “Goodbye Love”. The original Broadway production closed its curtain in September, 2008 as the seventh longest running show in Broadway history.

Another award-winning Broadway show that recently went on to tour is The Book of Mormon, which is now circling the country for a second time while still playing at 100 percent capacity on Broadway. Ninety percent of the tickets to The Book of Mormon’s national tour sold out within minutes of going on sale, with the only remaining seats being those with obstructed views. Tour cities, dates and cast for Rent have not yet been released, but except the tickets to sellout quickly in similar fashion to The Book of Mormon.
