The late, amazing writer of the musical RENT. He spent most of his life writing musicals and lived a very bohemian lifestyle. Many characters in RENT are based off of Jonathan and the people in his life. He suddenly and tragically died in his late twenties of an aortic aneurysm just before the opening night of RENT.
I love Jonathan Larson, he's amazing.
