Rent: No Day But Today
In honer of the final performance of Rent being released as a film now, I thought I would repost this.
"Life Is Yours To Miss"
-Johnathan Larson, Rent
I wanted to acknowledge the closing of the musical Rent last night. I think that it is at one of the most emotionally loaded closings we will ever see because the story of Rent goes beyond what so many audiences saw on the stage each night to another story that was almost a legendary tragedy about a musician who waited all his life to create a great musical and, on the eve of his musical finally getting produced, died suddenly. This is the story of Johnathan Larson, the man who wrote Rent who now we tragically will never see anymore from. This is why this is such a sad closing.
