Reviews of Rent

Follow a group of penniless young artists and musicians in Rent as they struggle to survive and create under the shadow of HIV/AIDS on New York City’s Lower East Side - all set to a modern rock score. Favorites include “La Vie Bohème,” “Tango: Maureen” and “Seasons of Love.” Based on Puccini’s La Bohème, _Rent_’s heart-wrenching stories, lovable characters and wildly catchy songs have stunned critics and made Broadway believers out of young audiences since its debut in the mid’90s. It is also the winner of the Tony Award for Best Musical and the Pulitzer Prize for Drama.

WOW!! By far the best production I've seen at this venue (and I've seen close to a dozen, if not more), but this was also one of the best musical productions I've ever seen in a community theater! Great singing, acting, casting and stage. I also...continued

I really wanted to like this production of Rent, but was disappointed with some of the casting choices, acting (in one case overacting), limited singing ability and total lack of chemistry. The goldstar seats were good, the theater staff were...continued

WOW, I was blown away by the passion and talent of this young student cast, especially by the guy portraying the musician. I have seen this play many times, on many size stages, but I don't think any of them moved me as much as this one did....continued

The casting and performances by the lead characters were great! The rest, including the “stage”, lighting, sound, set design, seats, etc. are about what you’d expect from a small community theatre production. There were several times when the...continued

I have seen many productions of RENT. This production was good however I felt like the female leads outsung/had better voices than some of the male leads. The set was pretty cool and the projections were well done. That was a clever idea. The...continued

WOW! What an outstanding performance performed by a most talented cast of great voices. The costumes were right on and the stage was utilized in a fantastic manner. The music was lively, great and I especially loved the "525,600 minutes"...continued

This community theatre version was much better than I expected. My only qualm was some of the singing. The young actors sometimes had problems with the melody. I knew the lyrics but occassionally wondered if they new the music of the song. ...continued

La Boheme transferred to New York on steroids. New York language, we were told, but not New York dialect. Creative use of the space, lights, sound. Musically, there are some people whom we'll see and hear on Broadway. Partial nudity--buttocks...continued
