Katy Richardson and Chris Poon - Rent


Katy Richardson is the Musical Supervisor and Chris Poon is the Musical Director for The Hope Mill’s production of Rent this Autumn.

Rent is a rock musical with music, lyrics, and book by Jonathan Larson and is loosely based on Giacomo Puccini’s opera, La Bohème.

It tells the story of a group of impoverished young artists struggling to survive and create a life in Lower Manhattan’s East Village in the thriving days of Bohemian Alphabet City, under the shadow of HIV/AIDS.
