The show was amazing! To see Adam Pascal and Anthony Rapp reprise their roles as Roger & Mark was nothing short of incredible! I wish I was able to attend over and over again!

I attended with my partner, her daughter (16), and my son (26). We all loved the show. The only problem was the location of the seats. I have been to MANY Goldstar events, and I was surprised that our seats were so bad. The 3rd tier is NOT...continued

Saw the same cast in LA in February and this performance was definitely not as good. Energy seemed to be lacking a bit. Still a great show and some great performances.

In a way it felt more like watching a preveiw or final dress than an actual performance. Energy was often lacking, timing was a little off and the sound engineer seemed to struggle with the levels. I'm not sure who is directing this production...continued

Great show, great cast! The 3 original members did a great job and made it look fresh even after tons of performances in the past. I highly recommend this show to everyone!

I didn't know a whole lot about the show going in, but I really did enjoy the performance. The lead male vocals were amazing, but the women blew me away as well! Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed the show and wished I had known more prior to sitting...continued

It was fantastic. We were upfront in Tier 3 and could see everything. I agree with everyone that it is worth seeing with the original cast members. Such wonderful songs. What a wonderful cast.

we may sound like old farts but wew could not understand any of the lyrics. The music was too loud. It would be helpful like in other operas where they have Librettos displayed on monitors so that every one can enjoy the story and lyrics. The...continued

Adam Pascal and Anthony Rapp are dynamic performers. They gave some of the best vocals I have heard all year. The cast in general is fantastic. I enjoyed every minute of the performance. It was very dark, touching and emotionally charged. The...continued

I absolutely LOVED it! It is a must-see. It definitely speaks to the contemporary generation. I had tears in my eyes through it.
My only complaints have to do with the seating and the price. I am confused because the cheapest tickets at...continued

This Musical is amazing! wonderful cast and powerful meaning. Just sad that our seats were so bad considering there were rows of seats available in other sections. This is not normal, generally we have great seats.

Saw RENT for the first time last night and wasn't sure what to expect. Being on a tight budget we bought the Tier 3 tix - unfortunately. This venue is way too large and so much of the vibe was lost in the distance to the stage. Although I'm a HUGE...continued

The seats at Tier 3 were bad. We could not see the performers on the left of the stage.
The show was very good. The actors were amazing. The props and stage design were great!

The show was great - we've seen it before and love the music and the performances. The bad part was that the seats were terrible! Tier 3 is very far from the stage, but the worst part was that these seats were on the far left side of tier 3, so...continued

I have seen Rent 5+ times and this time was nothing short of amazing. Anthony Rapp and Adam Pasquale were fantastic. It was so amazing to see my friend (who had only seen the movie) get enthralled by the nuances you just can't get from the movie....continued
