I just got back from my friends house and we all watched the last performance of RENT and we were crying like babies. We're all huge rentheads and i finally got the dvd. When Anthony Rapp walked out at the end I about had a heart attack :) I think he's really amazing and I'm going to see him May 2 when the touring cast comes to Houston. Adam Pascal will be in it also so I'm sure I won't be sleeping the week before :D I'm so glad I'm on spring break... Anyways I'm off to Galveston!!! It's nasty but always a really good time.

yeah...

I'm still deciding where to see the tour. I'm debating between, Dallas, Austin, Portland, and Seattle...

Not sure why it isn't coming to San Francisco... seems strange.

Do you really think it is weakness that yields to temptation? I tell you that there are terrible temptations which it requires strength, strength and courage to yield to.

You are so very lucky! I would collapse if i met him though lol I've seen recordings of Without You and the book's great. I'm hoping I can catch him after the show, I've heard he's amazingly nice with fans :D

=D Ta daaah!

Aw, man. The first time I watched it was on Youtube with Spanish subtitles getting in the way.

Is anyone else mad that it closed on Broadway?

Mad?

Well, since it closed based on lackluster ticket sales, no. All shows close eventually. 11 years is way, way above average.
