Fans of musicals based around rock tunes may find they are in their element during stays in New York hotels right now.
Not only is Rock of Ages delighting audiences, but classic show Rent is also back in the city for both visitors and locals to enjoy.
This Tony and Pulitzer Prize-winning show first opened in 1996 and closed in 2008, but demand was such that it returned and is now booking at the New World Stages.
Loosely based on the opera La Boheme, Rent tells the story of a group of friends in New York in 1991 who are struggling to get by as artists while also battling poverty, illness, the economy and Aids.
Although its subject matter may be too much for young children, teenagers and adults will find it hard not to be moved and even uplifted by the love stories, rock songs and pop ballads that are at the heart of the production.
You can catch Rent every day except Tuesday and the New World Stages - on 340 West 50th Street - is just a short walk from the Millennium Broadway Hotel New York.
Incidentally, Avenue Q is showing there too, which means theatre fans can see two shows in one day if they time it right.
