On SUNDAY, JULY 3, WE WILL HAVE A SPECIAL CLOSING PERFORMANCE WITH A PRE-SHOW COCKTAIL PARTY WITH FOOD FROM CAFE MOSO AND SPECIALTY BEERS FROM MONTCLAIR BREWERY as well as wines and non-alcoholic drinks!
Based on Puccini’s beloved opera La Bohème, Rent follows the ups and downs of a year in the life of a group of impoverished, artistic friends living in Manhattan’s East Village. The group’s dreams, losses, and love stories weave through the musical’s narration to paint a stunningly raw and emotional portrait of the gritty bohemian world of New York City in the late 1980s, under the shadow of HIV/AIDS.
A hallmark of Vanguard Theater is partnering with non-arts organizations to amplify their missions and propel social justice. Vanguard will celebrate these organizations at the following 8PM performances of RENT:
June 18: Montclair History Center
June 23: Hyacinth AIDS Foundation
June 30: Broadway House for Continuing Care
Doors open one hour before curtain. Snacks and beverages will be available for purchase.
See the seating chart in the gallery for guidance about picking your seats!
Please note that there is a dance studio located right above our theater. We do our best to incorporate their class schedules into the ambiance of our shows, to varying degrees of success.
