  • Ticket Liquidator is a resale marketplace, not a ticket seller. Prices are set by third-party sellers and may be above or below face value.

    close

    Ticket Liquidator is a nationwide network through which professional companies and trusted individuals resell tickets to events. This means that we don't charge your card, nor do we own, price, or ship the tickets listed for sale on our marketplace. The tickets are owned instead by hundreds of sellers who re-price their tickets based on the popularity of the event and the number of tickets available.
  • All seats are together unless stated otherwise.

    close

    We understand that people often attend events with friends or family and want to be located near the ones they love. Therefore, although seat numbers are not listed, we guarantee that tickets purchased through Ticket Liquidator will be together unless explicitly stated otherwise (e.g. the seller advertises the tickets as being "piggybacked" or "split") or the tickets are General Admission.
  • Tickets are not guaranteed to ship immediately.

    close

    The sellers who list tickets on our marketplace access tickets from a variety of sources - venues, fan clubs, event promoters, industry insiders, and even other ticket resellers. Some sellers may have to wait to receive tickets from their supplier due to ticket printing or distribution delays. Please note, though, that delayed delivery does not change the fact that you are guaranteed to receive your tickets by the date of the event once your order is accepted by the seller. Sellers also do their best to advertise expected delivery delays on their listings in order to help you make an informed purchase decision.
  • All sales are final.

    close

    Tickets are time-sensitive items. Prices rise and fall over time and their value expires following the event date. This means that sellers would be taking a risk by allowing customers to return tickets that might never be resold or otherwise resold for the same value as what you paid. The ticketing industry has therefore adopted an “all sales are final” policy that disallows ticket return. If, however, you find yourself unable or unwilling to use your tickets, you can always check out our consumer seller program.

Rent Information

About the show:

Rent has been a musical theatre and pop culture phenomenon since it exploded onto Broadway in 1996. Not only did it win 4 Tony Awards out of an impressive 10 nominations, but it also took the 1996 Pulitzer Prize for Drama. The original Broadway production played for 12 years and over 5,000 performances and launched several U.S. tours and mountings in several foreign countries, including England, Australia, Japan, and Brazil. A successful movie version featuring six of the original cast members (Adam Pascal, Anthony Rapp, Idina Menzel, Jessie L. Martin, Wilson Jermaine Heredia, and Taye Diggs) and two talented newcomers (Tracie Thoms and Rosario Dawson) was also released in 2005, bringing the magic of Rent to the silver screen.

Rent (the stage version) is a rock opera, meaning that it is completely sung through, and the Tony Award-winning score has given us such cherished songs as the signature "Seasons of Love," the playful "Light My Candle" and "Out Tonight," the diva-licious "Take Me or Leave Me," the solemn "Goodbye Love," and many more. The characters in Rent have become iconic and the show has developed a cult following, a group termed "Rentheads," originally referring to the dedicated fans who would camp out in front of the theater to get the $20 rush tickets, but which now means anyone obsessed with the show. Thankfully, many other productions have adopted this practice to make theatre more accessible to low-income individuals, especially students. Whether you're a Renthead yourself or you are just curious about this landmark show, check out the schedule, get your Rent tickets today, and get ready to live "La Vie Boheme!"

Plot Synopsis:

The story begins with struggling artists Mark Cohen, a film maker, and Roger Davis, a musician. Mark is beginning a new documentary and Roger is tuning up his guitar when their friend, Tom Collins, arrives at their building. They throw him the key but he is mugged before he makes it in the door. Meanwhile, they receive a call from former friend and roommate Benjamin "Benny" Coffin III. Since Benny found wealth after marrying a rich woman, he has bought their apartment building and demands rent, despite the fact that he had said that they could live there for free. Down in the alley, street drummer Angel finds Collins and brings him home to nurse him back to health. Back in the apartment, Roger tries desperately to write one good song before he dies of AIDS. Downstairs neighbor and drug-addicted club dancer Mimi comes up for a light for her candle and the pair flirt.

The next day, Collins and Angel, now in Christmas-themed drag, come with presents for Mark and Roger. Benny arrives and offers to let them live rent-free if they convince their friend and Roger's ex, Maureen, to cancel a protest scheduled for that night, but they refuse. Mark rushes to the performance space to help fix Maureen's equipment when he runs into her new girlfriend, Joanne. The pair are initially resentful of one another, but find common ground in their distaste for Maureen's flirtatious and unfaithful ways. Meanwhile, Mimi attempts to seduce Roger, but he can not bring himself to let her in, and Collins and Angel profess their love for each other. At the protest, Maureen gives an inspired performance ridiculing Benny for evicting the poor inhabitants of his buildings, but a riot ensues when the crowd get too rowdy. At a cafe after the show, the group unites to pay tribute to their Bohemian lifestyles, despite Benny's assertion that Bohemia is dead. When Roger discovers that Mimi is also HIV positive, they acknowledge that they both have baggage but can't deny their attraction to one another.

As the friends continue their struggles, jealousy and addiction threaten to tear lovers apart and disease threatens to part them forever. Some feel pressured to "sell out" to pay the bills against their more noble judgment, but times are tough and they've got to eat. Order Rent tickets today to discover the rest of the story and learn for yourself the destinies of these brave, young Bohemians.
