OYES’ inaugural production of Jonathan Larson’s Pulitzer and Tony Award winning rock musical, RENT, will run October 2nd-25th at the OYES theatre, located at 316 E. Matilija Street, Ojai, CA. Over the course of its groundbreaking 12-year New York run, RENT transformed the definition of musical theatre — and changed Broadway forever. Set in New York City’s gritty East Village, RENT tells the unforgettable story of a group of young artists learning to survive, falling in love, finding their voices and living for today. “Measuring their lives in love,” they strive for success and acceptance while enduring the obstacles of poverty, illness and the AIDS epidemic. OYES has coordinated with Broadway Cares/Equity Fights Aids organization for this event, to raise funds and join in an effort to spread awareness.
