Pierce said “Rent” presents serious issues, but, he added, “Ultimately, in the end, it’s about love. It’s about living.”
While the musical has many traditional elements, Pierce said, “This was an opportunity for DLO to follow my vision from the beginning — not just create a production, but to create a catalyst for social change.”
He hopes to see a new generation of theater-goers in the audience this weekend.
