No Day But Today

Five hundred twenty-five thousand six hundred minutes, how do you measure – measure a year? I recently saw Rent 20th Anniversary Tour on Broadway at the Fisher Theatre in downtown Detroit, and it was AMAZING! For me Rent holds a special place in my heart. Rent came out on DVD when I was in college and friends and I watched it… well an embarrassing number of times. So when I had the opportunity to see it live on Broadway, you know I obviously couldn’t pass it up – however it was a little bittersweet without my friends from college. I found myself comparing this show a lot to the original company, which isn’t fair when it had such a powerhouse like Idina Menzel. This company did have some serious pipes though, and really hit some crazy notes. The scene when Angel passes away almost had me in tears it was so beautiful. If this tour comes to your city I highly recommend seeing it, as it definitely will not disappoint.
