One Last Refrain.....

You might have heard that after 12 years on Broadway, Jonathan Larson's RENT will be performing it's last show on Sept. 7, 2008. Tickets for the final show are sold out. However, for those who love it but can't make it to NYC, Playbill will be selling a Limited Edition Closing Night Performance Playbill. You can pre-order it at the link provided. The playbill will contain a special 8 page feature on RENT's run on Broadway.

Also, as mentioned earlier here, Sony Pictures will be filming the final performance live (which will include the appearance of the OBC) and will be showing it in select theatres for four showings only (Sept. 24, 25, 27 and 28). It's part of their film series The Hot Ticket and serves to bring the show to audiences nationwide one last time. Check out the preview trailer of the final performance and see if you don't get choked up. It is indeed an end of an era!
