Venue: The Forum Studio Theatre

Jonathan Larson's Pulitzer-prize winning Broadway musical based loosely on Puccini's opera La Boh�me. It follows a year in the lives of seven friends living the disappearing Bohemian lifestyle in New York�s East Village. AIDS and both its physical and emotional complications pervade the lives of Roger, Mimi, Tom, and Angel; Maureen deals with her chronic infidelity through performance art; her partner, Joanne, wonders if their relationship is worth the trouble; Benjamin has sold out his Bohemian ideals in exchange for a hefty income and is on the outs with his former friends; and Mark, an aspiring filmmaker, feels like an outsider to life in general, always behind the camera recording the events but never playing a part. A ground-breaking rock musical.
