Winner of four Tony awards and the 1996 Pulitzer Prize, Jonathan Larson's rock masterpiece tells the story of one year – five hundred twenty five thousand six hundred minutes – in the lives of eight friends in New York's East Village who struggle with committing their lives to art and their hearts to each other. Join Mimi and Roger, Collins and Angel, Maureen and Joanne, and Mark and Benjamin on a groundbreaking musical journey through their season of love. Directed by Brad Friedman, choreographed by Robyn Tribuzi, music by Til Tribuzi and vocal direction by Shawn Reifschneider.
