After opening in a small Off-Broadway theater ERentE a modern adaptation of Puccini's ELa BohmeE quickly became a worldwide phenomenon with a more zealous and devoted fan base than had any musical in history.

Other chapters focus on the creative team and original cast; the development of the script and score from early drafts and workshop performances to the version we know and love today; the movie version tours and much more.
The section ERentE Cultural Literacy is a guide to all the titles and real people referenced in the show and the East Village and Alphabet City locations that ERentE helped make famous; another chapter provides clues to the characters and tips for anyone thinking about auditioning for the musical or putting on a production!
A final chapter provides a rundown with numerous photos of revivals and local productions all over the country including regional community and dinner theaters and high school and college versions.
ERent FAQE is a treasure trove of information background and fun facts for the show's devotees as well as anyone who might be lucky enough to be discovering the musical for the first time!
