awww....RENT....i'm gonna miss it...even if i haven't actually tangibly seen it on stage.
in case you didn't hear it yet, the hot ticket, a part of sony pictures, released RENT to select movie theatres for four shows only on september 24th & 25th and 27th & 28th. yes, they filmed the final curtain call at the nederlander theatre. me and bujit went to see it on wednesday. it brought both of us to tears, specially when they showed a photo of jonathan larson at the end. it's really sad that he didn't get to experience the success of his creation. RENT has touched so many lives in so many different ways you could ever imagine. the song "christmas bells" reminds you that there are others who is in way deeper shit hole than you are.....then enter "seasons of love" reminding you to live your life one day at a time and to just accept the people around you. "i'll cover you" reminds you that true love still exists, even for gay people. then "without you" gives you a glimpse of what it would feel like if you lose someone you really really love.
RENT totally kicking ass lives up to its coined statement, "no day but today".
thank you, jonathan larson.
