RENT at Monroe Theatrespace
Starts this week!
A Broadway Musical AND Charity!
The Theater Company (TTC) opens with the Broadway musical RENT on February 3, 2010, but instead of just telling the story of seven friends dealing with love, loss and AIDS, the company is also helping to raise money for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS and Hudson Pride Connections – two organizations whose mission is to assist in the fights against HIV/AIDS and bridge gaps for gay communities.
TTC will be collecting donations for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS (BC/EFA) during the first week of performances (February 3-7, 2010). BC/EFA is the nation’s leading industry based HIV/AIDS fundraising and grant-making organization who was kind enough to send one of their directors to meet with the cast of RENT to help them understand what it means to be living with HIV/AIDS. For more information on this organization, please visit their website: www.broadwaycares.org
During the second week of performances (February 10-14, 2010), TTC will be collecting donations for Hudson Pride Connections (HPC). Based in Jersey City, HPC works with people living with AIDS and the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community in Hudson County. In addition to helping to raise money for their cause, TTC will be bringing area-residents living with AIDS in to see the performances. For more information on HPC, please visit their website: www.hudsonpride.org
RENT is a powerfully moving production, but to TTC, continuing to get its message out isn’t enough. Please join the cast and crew of RENT in helping these two amazing charities, by making a monetary donation.
