Based loosely on Puccini’s La Bohème, Jonathan Larson’s masterpiece follows a year in the life of young artists and musicians struggling to survive and create in New York’s Lower East Side, under the shadow of HIV/AIDS. The disease pervades the lives of Roger, Mimi, Tom, and Angel. Maureen deals with her chronic infidelity toward her partner, Joanne. Benny has sold out his Bohemian ideals, and Mark, an aspiring filmmaker, feels like an outsider to life in general. How these young bohemians negotiate their dreams, loves, and conflicts provides the narrative thread to this groundbreaking musical.
Is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre international (MTI).
