PLATFORM Productions and Pemads will unite to bring Rent – the Musical to the Bay, an award-winning musical created by Jonathan Larson. This riveting 1980s rock musical is set in the midst of the Aids crisis and follows a young group of Bohemian people struggling to survive and succeed in the city of New York. The production will be directed by highly acclaimed director Robin Williams, who created Platform Productions in order to bring exciting and challenging productions to the city of Port Elizabeth. “This is an edgy and ultimately uplifting production,” she said. The strongly assembled cast of Rent is set to perform at the Pemads Little Theatre from May 16 to June 2. Bookings can be made at Computicket.
