Highlights were Angel, Tom Collins, Maureen
and Joanne duet. I highly recommend anyone
getting a chance to see this show with this cast.
I saw the show on broadway years ago and
struggled to follow the story and many
different pieces. Tonight I was so in tune and
Clearly understood why this story was such a
great work of art..
It’s sad to read reviews from people who apparently
had no idea what RENT was about! The show itself is
a time piece - so how can it be outdated ???? It took
place at the end of the millennium- all of the issues
were AND STILL are relevant! The cast was the most
talented cast I have seen on any touring production.
Major kudos to this cast and crew for gracing us with
your talent and dedication to this timeless piece! I
talked to many people sitting around me who felt the
same way! Your passion to deliver this message
shines through. So happy to have seen this cast doing
RENT justice. We laughed, cried, and sang along.
Being a NY native, I was fortunate enough to see this wonderful show on
Broadway, followed by every tour through Denver. When the movie came
out, I felt it raised the bar a bit, with most of the original cast and a
performance off a stage. These wonderful actors had some big shoes to fill.
They succeeded! Cast beautifully, each character bought a slightly different
sound to their role. This was fine, but there were times, I was wanting to
hear the song sung the way I remembered. Of course, I also wanted to sing
the entire show out loud, which would probably have been fine in NY. I
thoroughly enjoyed each performer even though they were not the original
Angel, Maureen, Mark, Joanne, Tom..... I'm not sure if the stage size has
changed, but this set felt cramped. Of course compared to the movie yes,
but this was the only aspect of the performance that I felt hindered the
production. ABSOLUTELY, go see this show!
IF YOU LOVED THE ORIGINAL, THIS SHOW IS AS GOOD AS IT GETS!
I was lucky enough to see this show when it first came out. I’ve seen some of the original cast members; I’ve seen it in London; I’ve seen local productions, and a touring production here in San Francisco. I bought the movie and the CDs by the original Broadway cast. I know this show and its songs by heart. When I attending the limited appearance of the 20th anniversary release at the Golden Gate Theatre, I was hoping for a decent rendition. What I got was a true and perfect laudation to the genius of the original work. The cast members were gritty and raw and delivered the messages of the storyline, but nuanced the show with enough of their personalities and their talent to make this not a tribute piece, but their own work of art. I loved every minute of every performance. I wasn’t the only one. When the show ended, the cast got a 10-minute standing ovation. Please don’t miss this gem – this is one to cherish for the ages. Eat at the Waystone (Market St) before/afterwards,
From the opening song till the very
last note, these characters take you
on a journey of how to deal with life
in tent city in late 1980-1990 when
the AIDS crisis started. Each character
brings something different to the
musical. Very well written and I am
happy that still after 20 yrs this
musical reach people and touches
