Most of the singers were good. Angel was GREAT and so was the character that played his/her boyfriend, but the girl playing Mimi could not sing. It was painful to sit through her performanaces. I am glad I only paid 1/2 price. I would have been...continued

I've been very active in musical theater as a director and choreographer earlier in my life. So I watch with different "hats" on. This production exceeded my expectations. Although the stage is small for this large cast, they managed it...continued

Great energy and Passion! 14 very talented actors on stage giving 120% to make every moment the best possible. Can't find anything negative to say except that it's difficult to understand every word as the energy is so high that the actors speak...continued

Two of my friends & I attended last night's performance. I saw RENT on Broadway a few years ago & saw the movie version as well. For the most part, the staging, singing and acting were great. However, the beautiful woman who played "Mimi",the...continued

Seen Rent many times, and this cast was as powerful and enthusiastic as any. Even the 'watered down' play was powerful.
Buy tickets, take your friends, be prepared to cry.

I have to say, I was disappointed in this version of RENT. I have seen it multiple times and consider it to be my favorite musical, but this version did little for me. It seemed as if all of the potentially "offensive" portions of the play had...continued

The venue was great and the actors were all talented. The problem for me was that "Rent" was a real downer. Even at a bargain price, I should not have chosen such a depressing storyline.

The quality of this production of Rent is amazing. The talent matches if not exceeds that of those depicted on the DVD. My girlfriend hadn't seen the musical before, and she was blown away. Thank you for a wonderful evening of awesome...continued

The venue is small and on the older side, but I had a fantastic view of the stage and the seats were very comfortable. The stage setup is cool, though the use of the TVs on stage can be helpful at times and then oddly distracting at other times....continued

We weren't sure what exactly was going on some of the time, and some things were sort of New York insider things which didn't connect with the Southern CA audience. The singing and dancing, and the band, was very good, but all in all we weren't...continued

The play was fantastic and the teather is a very small venue where no seat is a bad seat. I felt very close to the cast and stage even though we sat towards the back. It was truly a great event!

Unbelievable talent of the entire cast, and powerful voices, from the local actress, Kathleen Calvin (Mimi) seasoned artist, Joey Elrose (Roger). We loved the show!

Overall the performance was fine. It's a fun rock opera in a somewhat intimate theater. The dialog was censored. A few expletives were left in but many were removed. I didn't notice as a first-time attendee but my friends found it a bit...continued

The players were very talented, but it had suggestive material. At Welk Theater this is unexpected. The music was clever, but very confusing and not very appealing. The story line was fragmented and did not give you a warm and fuzzy feeling, as...continued

Excellent performance of RENT! The cast was talented and professional, and their charismatic energy brought this touching story to life. The male leads were particularly outstanding. The seating was comfortable and the sound system in the...continued
