Viva La Vie Boheme! Meet the Insanely Talented Cast of Fox’s Rent Live

Another iconic musical is getting the live broadcast treatment! Fox is bringing us back to 1989 with its live version of Jonathan Larson’s Tony- and Pulitzer-winning rock musical, Rent. Loosely based on Giacomo Puccini’s opera La Boheme, Larson’s Rent follows a group of young artists struggling to survive in New York’s East Village during the days of the HIV/AIDS crisis. The musical spawned a touring production, a 2005 movie adaptation directed by Chris Columbus, and an off-Broadway adaptation.

The cast for Fox’s Rent Live features some of our favorites from Grease: Live, which means we’re definitely in for a treat. Alongside Vanessa Hudgens and Jordan Fisher, we have Jesus Christ Superstar Live‘s Brandon Victor Dixon, Grammy winner Mario, RuPaul’s Drag Race’s Valentina, and more! Check out the full cast ahead.
