Review from Gillespie6911

This was my 6th time seeing rent so I may be a bit of a snob when it comes to rent but they made some changes to Rent that I feel were better the original way. The music in Rent is amazing and the actors did a good job but as far as Rent goes, I...continued

Review from Heidi Renee

I love RENT! The musical captured my heart when I first saw it on stage in 2000. I rated this performance with only 4 stars because I was disappointed or distracted by a couple of things. One of the most meaningful things to me in my first...continued

This was my fourth time attending "Rent" (including once on Broadway), and I enjoyed this re-vamped production very much!

Review from Boris Press

Not too bad, had a little different level of expectations. After all, it's a local crew, not a NY Broadway level.

Review from Thatch

We were Rent virgins. Went in with few expectations. We loved it! This was the last show of the run, and it looked like they really poured their hearts into it. The energy was very high. The audience was appreciative and returned the energy. I...continued

Review from Terry

Wonderful production! While some of the subject matter is difficult, the theme of pursuing your dreams in spite of hardship and living for today shine through.

It was fine, but the singing could have been better (I am a trained musician and specifically heard some flat notes). I was a little disappointed that this was not a Broadway cast or traveling Broadway cast. I've seen Rent twice at other...continued

Review from easmundson

Thought it glamorized drugs and trivialized the aids crisis as it was in the 80's.

Review from Vicki Burkhart

One of the main characters had a lisp when he spoke and when he sang, thought his acting was sub-par as well. The overall pitch was too high the entire play, it was a relief when one of the male singers sang in a lower key

I can't imagine a better production of this show. There is nothing about the production that I would have changed. All of the performances were top notch. Roger and Mimi had especially great voices. The set and the lighting design was so...continued

Review from Laura Stanton

I love the 5th Avenue Theatre and it is a great venue to go and see plays at. I had seen the DVD of RENT before going to this play and I found the DVD to be more exciting than the play itself. It was hard to follow along with what was going on at...continued

It was a really good show. I wasn't familiar with a lot of the music, but I very much enjoyed it. A very good cast of performers, strong singers, dancers, and actors.

Review from Sisyphean

Liked the production going for a young cast. Fits the struggling staving artists better than more mature actors. The young man playing Angel knocked it out of the park. Great presence without overdoing the drag queen stereotype portrayal so often...continued

The show was great! I was especially impressed with Maureen's "Over the Moon" performance and I cried through almost the entire second act.
