D-Cube Arts Center  

June 16 - Aug. 23: The musical “Rent” is coming to Seoul for the first time in nine years.  
Its return is considered special because the musical premiered here in 2000, and this year marks 20th anniversary of the musical being staged here.  
“Rent” is loosely based on Italian opera “La  boheme,” composed by Giacomo Puccini.  
The musical revolves around the lives of poor artists living in the East Village of New York City.  
The musical is an autobiographic story of Jonathan Larson who wrote the scripts. He also composed all the varied musical numbers, from rock to R&B to tango to ballad to gospel.  
When the musical first debuted on Broadway in 1996, it was considered sensational as the story touches upon social issues regarding homosexuality, AIDS and rampant drug use of young adults.  
But the musical captivated critics and the public upon its debut and snatched numerous awards, including the 1995-1996 Pulitzer Prize and Tony Awards in 1996.  
Since its premiere, “Rent” has been produced in 47 countries and 25 different languages.  
Singer-turned-actor Oh Jong-hyuk and musical actor Jang Ji-hoo are double cast for the role of Roger, while another singer-turned-actor Ivy plays the role of Mimi, alternating with musical actor Kim Soo-ha.  
Due to the subject matter, the musical has been rated for audiences who are 17 years old and above.  
The show starts at 8 p.m. from Tuesdays to Fridays and from 2 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. on weekends.  
There are no shows on Mondays.  
All people in the audience will be required to wear masks for the duration of the performance.  
Tickets range from 60,000 won to 140,000 won.
