Audience Reviews for Rent
If you did not get the chance to see this amazing performance in NYC, now is your chance... its a deep story about a group of friends dealing with aids, love, and surviving. It is one of my personal favorite shows on Broadway, I give it a 90%!!
This film was moving and empowering, but I do not feel that it benefited from being converted from a theater production to a film. At times, the songs were kitschy and sometimes badly sung, and at other times, the music was extremely powerful. However, I don't feel that the directors took full advantage of modernizing and utilizing more evocative imagery in this adaptation.
This broadway masterpiece can finally be watched over and over again. I saw this show 6 times on broadway before it closed. While the cast that starred in this final performance wasn't my favorite, it did include the original cast performing seasons of love at the end with the current cast. An era ended on September 9th, 2008. But at least we can capture it forever on this release. A must have for any Renthead. 1000 times better than the "movie" that was released in 2005.
