It’s exhausting to consider that it’s been 525,600 (x 23) minutes since a little-known composer unleashed one of the crucial influential musicals within the historical past of American theater.

Celebrating greater than twenty years, Jonathan Larson’s Lease continues to evangelise love, variety, and creativity despite circumstance. The rock opera has scored a Pulitzer Prize and 4 Tony Awards and has acquired the Hollywood remedy with a 2005 film starring Rosario Dawson — and now, a shocking 20th anniversary manufacturing. Described as a “re-imagining of Giacomo Puccini’s opera La Bohème,” Lease tracks one 12 months within the lives of seven New York Metropolis artists and dreamers struggling to dwell life as their truest selves throughout the top of the HIV/AIDS disaster.
