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,

RENT

We are Rent fans and have seen the play over 20 times.Many of the productions were amateurish 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!

RENT

The performance was overall awesome! Mark, Angel, Collins, Maurine, and Joanne were that stars of the show. Mimi was a huge disappointment in every aspect, and roger was a bit over the top with his acting and got a little screamy when he sings. The show its self was just like the movie and the production was breath taking!!!! I have been such a huge fan and that was a huge highlight in my life was being able to see it on broadway! I loved it!!!!
