DETROIT – Broadway shows will be returning in Detroit later this year with the “Rent 25th Anniversary Farewell Tour” at Fisher Theatre.

“In October, it will be 60 years since the Fisher Theatre reopened as a legitimate Broadway theatre,” said Broadway In Detroit Executive Director Alan Lichtenstein. “And now, 842,400 minutes since our last performance, we’re ready to begin a new era of Broadway performances with one of Detroit’s favorite shows, Rent. Ring the bells, flash the lights, our intermission is coming to an end.”

Performances of the Tony Award winning show will take place on Oct. 19-24.

Tickets for “Rent” are $39 and up and will go on sale Friday, June 25, at Ticketmaster and in person at the Fisher Theatre Box Office. Group discounts of 10 or more are available on Broadway In Detroit’s website right here.
