A special “sing-a-long’ screening of the film version of the Pulitzer and Tony Award winning musical about a group of Bohemians in New York City and their struggles with sexuality, drugs, paying their rent, and life under the shadow of AIDS. Mark (Anthony Rapp), an aspiring filmmaker, and Roger (Adam Pascal), an HIV-positive musician, scramble for money to pay rent to their landlord and former roommate, Benny (Taye Diggs). Meanwhile, their friend Tom (Jesse L. Martin), a professor, has fallen for Angel (Wilson Jermaine Heredia), who is slowly dying of AIDS. Based on Giacomo Puccini’s opera La bohème and featuring six of the original Broadway cast members.
