Cromer is coming back to Chicago for 'Rent'

It’s now official. David Cromer is returning to Chicago to direct Jonathan Larson’s musical “Rent.”

The show, a co-production between American Theater Company and About Face Theatre, is slated to open on Chicago’s North Side in next summer.

In a statement released Friday, Cromer said, “The forces at work in Rent are just so exhilarating. What’s richer than exploring that time in your life when you’re freezing cold, and terrified, and in love, and completely broke and inspired and besieged?”

Plans are for “Rent” to be the final production of American Theater Company’s 27th season, opening June 7, 2012, at 1909 W. Byron St.
