525600 Minutes


After falling in love with the music and then the movie, I finally saw RENT onstage. Twice. With Adam Pascal and Anthony Rapp (the original Roger and Mark). It was absolutely wonderful. Better than I could have hoped for. Such powerful, moving performances.

I went last Tuesday with Bee, I took her for her birthday. The bf and I went on Wednesday. It was incredible. We were in the balcony both times, which was great, if a little far away. But I know the show really well, so it worked perfectly. Wicked comes later in the summer, and I'm thinking mezzanine seats.

If you haven't seen RENT, do yourself a favor and at least go RENT the movie. It's WONDERFUL. So creative, so powerful. Absolutely inspirational.

Isn't Rent FAB? Seriously, it is one my faves too so I'm glad you saw it Jaina!

Jaina said...

MamaGeek-Absolutely! I was SO excited that it came here, with Anthony and Adam no less. SO awesome. It was one of the things my friends and I loved junior and senior year, so there were definitely some tear jerking parts of it, but SO wonderful.

Oh my gosh, yes! I have seen it way back when in NYC on broadway and it was AMAZING!

Oh great, now I'm gonna be singing that song...
"5 hundred 25...."

Yaya-OH! I'm so jealous that you saw it ON Broadway! The only thing I've seen on Broadway was Jesus Christ Superstar. It was really good though. :) I REALLY want to go back to New York.
