The Firehouse Theatre Project produces contemporary theater in a an urban space – a 101-year-old former station house of the Richmond City Fire Department. Featuring Off-Broadway shows and original works, the Firehouse Theatre Project brings to Richmond audiences a New York theater experience at a lower price point and with more emphasis on the actor.
This year’s Special Summer Production is RENT, from June 24 to August 1, Thursdays through Saturdays at 8 PM, with “pay-what-you-will” matinees on Sundays at 4 PM. Susan Haubenstock of the Richmond Times-Dispatch reviewed RENT on June 26th. The basis of the musical is following a group of young people living in New York as they deal with issues of money, mortality, love and betrayal.
Located a short walk from our Fan District bed and breakfast, the Firehouse Theatre Project is often a source of entertainment for visitors to the Fan District and Richmond, as well. In fact, guests have selected our bed and breakfast as their favorite accommodations for a weekend of performing arts. A previous post to this blog, chronicled one couple’s experience. Select your guest room now, and get your tickets to see RENT for a getaway to remember.
