Rent Returns to New York City

It's only been three years since Rent, that unlikely rock reinvention of La Boheme, closed after a 12-year run at the Nederlander Theater (pictured right) on Broadway. This month, the late Jonathan Larson's most famous work is returning to New York, albeit off-Broadway, where it first began way back when.

The New York Times has a great story about the rebirth of the modern classic, which will once again be directed by Michael Grief and will feature a cast of young up-and-comers. While the original production started life at the decidedly downtown New York Theater Workshop, this new off-Broadway edition will be at the shiny post-modern and multi-plex-ish New World Stages. Only time will tell if this new edition will be as popular as the original, but we say it's nice to have a New York musical back in New York again.
