Let’s see what they had to say,
“When we began working on the production of Rent in Cuba and documenting the journey along the way, I had no idea how the story would unfold and that our documentary would end up on HBO,” says director Andy Señor, Jr. “I am beyond thrilled to share this deeply personal and magical moment in our lives and I’m grateful that Jonathan Larson’s words and music are still making such an impact, 25 years later.”
“Traveling to Cuba to make this film was incredibly challenging yet rewarding in ways I never imagined,” says director Victor Patrick Alvarez. “Revolution Rent is about creativity in the face of adversity and the healing powers of human connection.”
“Andy and I started our Rent journey together many years ago and I was proud to see him take his talents to Cuba,” says executive producer Neil Patrick Harris. “Revolution Rent is a continuation of our journey as well as a tribute to the power of theater and its ability to transform lives.”
