RENT is the inspirational rock musical that reminds us all to choose love over fear, even when times are toughest—and it has finally arrived in LA. The show opens this weekend (starting on September 23rd) and will run until December 18th. You definitely don’t want to miss Jonathan Larson’s heartfelt masterpiece in the skillful hands of the Cupcake Theater Company.
Cupcake Theater’s RENT is being held in the Hollywood Majestic theater. Inspired by top-tier hidden venues in Chicago and New York, the Hollywood Majestic prides itself on its location. You’ll find it in East Hollywood off the corner of Melrose and Heliotrope, or as the locals call it: Hel-Mel. You can also access the theater’s entrance off of North Berendo Street. It’s the perfect place for the sense of community that RENT inspires.
If you aren’t already familiar with the Cupcake Theater Company, they have been responsible for some of the best live shows in LA for almost 10 years. The founder, Michael Pettenato, has worked as a professional baker and even appeared on Cupcake Wars. Now serving “bite-sized entertainment” to Los Angeles, the Cupcake Theater Company has put on such enchanting works as Disney’s The Little Mermaid and Legally Blonde.
Michael Pettenato may call his entertainment “bite-sized,” but he and his team have become known for attracting Broadway-level talent to their productions. In fact, many of the Cupcake Theater’s alumni have gone on to work on Broadway, National Tours, American Idol, and The Voice! We’re certain the actors and crew putting on this rendition of RENT will go on to do even more extraordinary things.
The Cupcake Theater is back with the Pulitzer and Tony Award-Winning Musical RENT, and you can get your tickets here!
RENT is about building community, and after the pandemic we could all use a bit more fellowship.

RENT is now playing in LA, and luckily there will be plenty of performances throughout its stay.
