Alas, RENT is no longer on Broadway and it's a shame. They had a good run though, 12 years. Some say that RENT wouldn't have been the success that it was if the writer of the "rock opera", Jonathan Larson, hadn't died suddenly the night before opening day. I disagree and I think anyone who has seen RENT would also.
RENT was here recently and I had the pleasure of seeing it one last time with my BFF and my daughter with two of the original cast members (Anthony Rapp & Adam Pascal). I can't even describe how amazing it was and the women who played Mimi Marquez (Lexi Lawson) and Maureen Johnson (Nicolette Hart) were absolutely awesome.
I wanted to link the video for You Tube here, but I can't figure it out, SO instead here's the link:
So, do you have a favorite play or musical?
