The Hot Ticket brings Rent
When "Rent," Broadway's landmark musical, marks the end of an era and closes its historic run, Sony Picture's The Hot Ticket will be there. For the first time ever, audiences across the country who are unable to attend a Broadway show will be able to see this once-in-a-lifetime event as The Hot Ticket presents the closing of "Rent" in select movie theaters with special limited engagement performances September 24, 25, 27, and 28.
The Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning musical will end its 12-year run on Broadway on Sunday, September 7. Utilizing the latest in High-Definition video and digital audio technology, the cinecast of Rent, directed by Michael Warren, will take the audience on an enhanced journey through the music, lyrics, and images of this storied piece of live entertainment. The audience will experience this production like never before - not only from the best seats in the Nederlander Theatre, but from the stage and wings, where cameras will capture the raw emotion of the cast's performance.
The final production of Rent features Will Chase as Roger, Adam Kantor as Mark, Michael McElroy as Tom, Rodney Hicks as Benjamin, Tracie Thoms as Joanne, Justin Johnston as Angel, Renee Elise Goldsberry as Mimi, and Eden Espinoza as Maureen. Michael Grief, who stage directed the original production of Rent, returns to stage-direct the final production.
Century 25 Union City is one of the few Bay Area theaters that will be showing a limited engagement of Rent.
