Loosely based on the 1896 Italian opera Bohemian by Giacomo Puccini, LEASE, has become a cultural phenomenon with millions of fans around the world. Porchlight’s production celebrates this legacy and adds a new page to the story of a year in the life of a diverse group of artists struggling to survive and create in Lower Manhattan’s East Village under the shadow of HIV. /AIDS. Back to the flourishing era of bohemian Alphabet City at the end of the millennium, these friends are determined to pursue their dreams without betraying each other.
