district theater review: Rent 20th anniversary tour

I caught the last show of the Rent 20th anniversary tour last weekend. Watching Larson’s musical today, where its setting, the East Village, Manhattan, is now a gentrified landscape of brunching, happy-hour going, twenty-somethings, it is impossible not to ask if the story of Rent is still relevant.
