  • Live performance of popular, mature musical hits sour note.

    February 6, 2019 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • This, it should not need to be said, made for a depressingly lame show...

    February 1, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Outside the dress rehearsal disaster, one of the weirder side effects of "Rent" airing on Fox is that "Rent" could never be itself on Fox.

  • We'll never know whether a genuinely live version would have come closer to preserving the urgency of Larson's beloved musical, but it certainly would've had a better excuse for showing so many seams.

  • The screwup on this one is about to become legendary and will probably have massive effects on any live musical theater performances on television going forward.

  • But to make all of this even weirder, there was a live performance of Rent happening onstage - and it was awesome!
