Some Trying To Pull Plug On “Rent”

Next month “Rent” is opening at the Lake City Playhouse in Coeur d'Alene, but some people think the plug should be pulled because of what they call immoral behavior in the musical.Rent has won a Pulitzer, a Tony and was made into a popular motion picture. According to Lake City Playhouse artistic director George Green, Rent is about “artists trying to make it in the world through their struggles, through their addictions, through their pain, through their sickness and overcome.”The musical takes place under the shadow of HIV/AIDS, and there are several characters that are homosexual, and not everyone in the community is OK with the play being performed in Coeur d'Alene/Anusha Roy, KXLY.

Question: Does this controversy guarantee sellouts for Lake City Playhouse production of “Rent”?
