RENT: Filmed Live On Broadway

On Feb. 3, 2009 the RENT: Filmed Live on Broadway DVD will be released. It captures the final performance of one of the most iconic pieces of musical theatre. The show was filmed live at the Nederlander Theatre NYC on Sept. 7, 2008. Starring Will Chase as Roger, Adam Kantor as Mark, Michael McElroy as Collins, Tracie Thoms as Joanne, Justin Johnston as Angel, ReneƩ Elise Goldsberry as Mimi, Eden Espinosa as Maureen and original cast members Rodney Hicks, who steps into the role of Benny, and Gwen Stewart as the "Seasons of Love" soloist.

The dvd has a lot of extras with the final curtain call, the Rent alumni singing Seasons of Love, the final lottery and it's craziness but the best of all is the feature of the Wall. It's the famous wall of the Nederlander Theatre where Rentheads - famous and not so famous - showing their love for the show, left their signatures.
