East Village Walking Tour
Jonathan Larson lived and breathed in the East Village. Join us in visiting many East Village locations that were featured in both the stage and movie versions of the musical RENT. Feel the "Seasons of Love" come alive as you meet fellow Rent fanatics at The New York Theatre Workshop, where the musical originally premiered and learn about fascinating stories of Jonathan Larson and the actors who helped make the musical what it is today. For 20 years this show has inspired and defied a generation of younger fans. Sing along with your tour guide to songs like "You okay Honey" and "I'll cover you" that took place in St Marks Place and Tompkins Square Park. Learn about theatre superstitions, Off-Broadway and Off-Off Broadway theatre's, and enjoy experiencing the musical come alive right in front of you with your talented musical theatre tour guide. So what are you waiting for? Come "Out Tonight" and join us for "RENT"!
We will meet at the New York Theatre Workshop where it all began and visit places that Jonathan Larson walked past and or visited while working on the show. Places include St. Marks place, Tompkins Square Park, Life Cafe, and more. At the very end we will take a high resolution photo as a souvenir.
