The critically acclaimed musical Rent makes a return to the West End in its third London outing and following a successful UK tour.
Rent was an instant success when it opened on Broadway, winning the Pulitzer Prize for drama, 4 Tony Awards, 6 Drama Desk Awards and 3 Obie Awards in its first year on Broadway. Its writer Jonathan Larson died of an aneurysm after the final dress rehearsal, just days before the show opened, so did not see the success his work became.
Rent is based around Puccini’s La Bohème but updates the story to East Village, modern day New York. A community of young artists battle against the prospect of losing their homes due to the demands of a former friend who is now their landlord. This is the last thing they needed in their already troubled lives: Mark is struggling to become a film maker, Roger is struggling to come to terms with HIV. Although the story does not shy away from gritty topics, the show is still a favourite amongst the musical-going public.
Best known for her prodigious modelling feats, Caprice has also dabbled in television presenting and pop-singing as well as acting. She previously appeared at The West End in The Vagina Monolgues.
