A Ground-Breaking, Pop-Culture Phenomenon


This revolutionary Tony and Pulitzer Prize winning musical takes us on an unforgettable roller coaster ride through a year in the fascinating lives of aspiring artists in NYC’s Alphabet City. Infused with explosive rhythms and tender pop ballads like “Without You,” “Out Tonight,” “La Vie Boheme,” and the title song “Rent,” this timeless celebration of friendship and hope, inspired by Puccini’s La Bohème, reminds us to measure our lives with the only thing that truly matters—the “Seasons of Love.”

A Night on the Town in New York, New York


Dropping anchor in Bellport after a smashingly successful revival on Broadway, On the Town is a bold and brassy musical comedy about three sailors on 24-hour shore leave in New York City during World War II. Beloved for both its soaring score of Leonard Bernstein songs like “Come Up to My Place,” “Lucky to Be Me,” “I Can Cook Too,” and the iconic, “New York, New York,” and its timeless themes of youth and exuberance, On the Town is a tale about seizing the day and living life to its fullest.
