Rent: The Musical



* First image is not mine. The rest are mine.

I watched RENT today at Rockwell. It was a limited run and I felt very lucky to have gotten the chance to score tickets courtesy of a friend. He got the tickets only this week and we were late in getting to Rockwell because of the traffic but fate was smiling at us since they just literally started when we got inside the theatre.

I watched CATS last August and I was a little apprehensive that I might not be blown away nor impressed with the perfomance of the RENT cast but boy was I in for a major misgiving. I WAS BLOWN AWAY.

The cast was really good and fit all the characters. They were very much immersed in who they were supposed to be that save for a few moments here and there, you wouldn't see Gian Magdangal but Roger nor would you see Sheree Bautista but Mimi. Maureen (Mian Dimacali) and Joanne (Jenny Villegas) were also really great but the star of the night I had to say, the one who stole the show was ANGEL.

This is me with Angel ... otherwise known in real life as Albert Job Bautista. 


I was lucky enough to catch him getting some coffee and I just had to get my photo taken with him. He was really good and I have deep respect for him.

The show delivered and the cast were great at it. It is truly worth watching. The music is very catchy and the songs tend to play over and over again in your head.

This here is my "Would you light my candle?" photo which was inspired by RENT. It is that addicting.


And here are my very important souvenir shots of the show. RENT ROCKS! Go watch it! NOW!



MOOOOO!
