The Jonathan Larson Effect: How Rent Changed the American Musical Theatre Experience Libation Lecture

April 19 @ 5:30 pm

Join our resident cabaret artist, J. Chang-Tablada to hear songs from Rent and learn more about the incredible impact that Jonathan Larson made on the American musical theatre landscape.

Larson lived in poverty, waited tables, and worked seven years to bring his rock opera Rent to the stage — only to collapse and die the night before previews were to open at the Off-Broadway New York Theater Workshop. Rent became an enormous success and achieved Larson’s ambition of updating musical theater and making it relevant to younger audiences.

This lecture coincides with the theatre show Rent, on stage at the FAC May 2–June 2.

Themed drink: Bohemian Cocktail
Lecturer: J. Chang-Tablada, Resident Cabaret Artist and FAC Theatre Company Music Director

$10 for FAC members, $15 for non members, includes your first drink
