Written Component: Each student will submit an individual written assignment addressing a substantive topic related to the period and/or musical – i.e. social and political context, issues
addressed or implied, etc. Your topic must provide substantive insight into the play and/or period and must not significantly duplicate the information of any other group member. Cite all
sources and include a bibliography (a minimum of three sources in addition to the script, at least one of which should NOT be an internet source). This information should be different from, yet
augment, anything we have read in class and must adhere to the following guidelines: 5-6 typed pages – double-spaced, with one-inch margins, in a 12-point Times New Roman font. Write at least
five full pages. The name of the musical that you have to write about is: RENT The Musical.
