Christmas, the Lower East Side. A filmmaker tries to get over his lesbian ex-girlfriend. His roommate's girlfriend has committed suicide after learning she has AIDS. Outside, a transsexual named Angel rescues a fellow named Tom Collins after a mugging, and upstairs, Mimi, an S&M dancer, is shivering in the cold. Puccini meets Manhattan.

The show started off at the New York Theater Workshop in the East Village, and created an immediate sensation - the combination of the quality of the production and the untimely and tragic death of its young creator, Jonathan Larson, created an energy that launched it into the theatrical stratosphere.

Final Perf Lottery: The producers have made available a limited number of $20 same-day tickets for the final performance. Lottery names will begin to be taken at 11am and the lottery will be drawn at noon. There will be 32 seats available. Tickets will be paid for in cash at the box office at noon and picked up prior to the show with proper ID.

(The theatre has been retrofitted to resemble a Lower East Side dive, so those looking for all the gilty pleasures of a Broadway theatre should adjust their expectations.)

No children under the age of 4 will be admitted. Not recommended for children under 14. Everyone is required to have a ticket.

Cast News: Original cast members Adam Pascal and Anthony Rapp have left the show.

Here's a clip of some music from the show:
