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,
We are Rent fans and have seen the play over 20 times.Many of the productions were
but we took a chance anyway because we love the show so much.
This (20th anniversary Pantages) production is the best in over 10 years. The cast tore the
house down last night (Jan 25) We are going back Sunday and it aint cheap..but that's how
good it is. They are sold out but if you can find a ticket..go...go...go!!
P.S. Not a good play for kids..eat at Delphines across the street before play!
We saw it Saturday afternoon and really
enjoyed it! Angel, Maureen, Joanne and the girl
who sang the solo in Seasons of Love have
amazing voices! Mimi was a huge
disappointment voice wise since Out Tonight is
a favorite and she butchered it!! We were top
balcony, so we really couldn’t see faces. Will get
closer seats next time.
SOME STOOD OUT; SOME NOT-SO-MUCH; OVERALL GREAT SHOW!
I love Rent! As a Chicago native, I saw it when it first came to Chicago oh, so many
years ago. I bought the CD by the original cast, saw the movie numerous times in
theaters and bought the DVD. I know every song and line by heart - note for note. I
was impressed by the cast, Maureen (a joy to watch), Joanne (her vocals are
amazing), Mark (perfectly cast), Collins (man, can that guy sing!), and a female
member of the ensemble who has a solo in the Seasons of Love song (that girl has
pipes on her that you would not believe!). My only not-so-good takeaways were
Roger (screams during most songs, and seemed tired), Mimi (couldn't hold the notes
all the way through; dancing was great, but seemed unconvincing; Maureen stole
the show from Mimi), (I hate to say this, but...) Angel was dynamic, but lost his breath
throughout the numbers. So some of the lines came out rushed. The music itself
seemed rushed, with blunt transitions between scenes. But I still gave a standing
ovation! Worth it!
