Theatre closures due to coronavirus outbreak
From Saturday 15 August 2020, indoor performances at London theatres are allowed (with social distancing).
Outdoor performances (where possible) can also go ahead.
However, most theatres remain closed as they either do not have outside spaces or regard the need for social distancing as uneconomic.
The show below will not currently be playing and is scheduled to close by 15 August 2020 (when theatres can reopen for indoor performances).
Original performance dates are given below and reflect any changes we know about.
Closed 24 Aug 2019

Drawing inspiration from the Puccini opera La Boheme, Rent is a riveting celebration of friendship, community, creativity and otherness.
Exploring the lives and loves of a group of struggling artists in New York City, this complex but uplifting show reminds us to 'measure our lives in love' and live each day to the fullest.
Packed full of much-loved songs, from the extraordinary 'Seasons of Love' to 'Take Me or Leave Me' and 'La Vie Boheme', Rent is a moving, memorable masterpiece that will be brought to life as never before by RicNic London this summer.
