Smash-hit, award-winning musical Rent is heading for Peterborough’s New Theatre next year.

​Landmark Theatres – which runs the theatre in Broadway - has announced its debut production of Jonathan Larson’s Tony and Pulitzer Prize-winning rock musical will open here in Peterborough on June 20 next year.

Rent follows a group of young artists living in Manhattan’s East Village as they navigate love, loss, and the devastating impact of HIV/AIDS. The powerful and inspiring storytelling beautifully captures the ultimate sacrifice of a life of stability for the sake of art, reminding us of the importance of following our passions and taking risks to pursue our dreams.
