Jonathon Larson's RENT, winner of four Tony Awards, tells the story of the day-to-day lives of characters struggling to make the most of the time they have, and also compassionately highlights the issues facing LGBT individuals, especially those battling AIDS. Appropriately, a portion of the proceeds from RENT will benefit the South Jersey AIDS Alliance, South Jersey's leader in the fight against AIDS.
