With a devoted fan base of millions, this musical presents a group of disconnected, marginalized cross-dressers, drug addicts, and members of the LGBTQ community living in New York City’s bohemian East Village. The show celebrates the characters' common humanity and the way they embrace life in the face of a deadly disease epidemic. This musical has resonated strongly with mainstream audiences all over the world and will be broadcast live on the Fox network this coming January. View two different video presentations: the 2005 movie adaptation and a stunning presentation of a live stage production. There will also be material from a couple of documentaries, one detailing the composition of the show which is its own compelling and moving story, and another detailing the remarkable emotional response of its legion of fans called “Rent-heads.”
