If you loved the original, this show is as good as it gets!,
Feb 13, 2017
reviewer: from SF Bay Area, California
I was lucky enough to see this show when it first came out. I’ve seen some of the original cast members; I’ve seen it in London; I’ve seen local productions, and a touring production here in San Francisco. I bought the movie and the CDs by the original Broadway cast. I know this show and its songs by heart. When I attending the limited appearance of the 20th anniversary release at the Golden Gate Theatre, I was hoping for a decent rendition. What I got was a true and perfect laudation to the genius of the original work. The cast members were gritty and raw and delivered the messages of the storyline, but nuanced the show with enough of their personalities and their talent to make this not a tribute piece, but their own work of art. I loved every minute of every performance. I wasn’t the only one. When the show ended, the cast got a 10-minute standing ovation. Please don’t miss this gem – this is one to cherish for the ages. Eat at the Waystone (Market St) before/afterwards,

Rent,
Jan 26, 2017
reviewer: from Los Angeles, California
We are Rent fans and have seen the play over 20 times.Many of the productions were amateurishbut we took a chance anyway because we love the show so much. This (20th anniversary Pantages) production is the best in over 10 years. The cast tore the house down last night (Jan 25) We are going back Sunday and it aint cheap..but that's how good it is. They are sold out but if you can find a ticket..go...go...go!!

 

P.S. Not a good play for kids..eat at Delphines across the street before play!

Some stood out; some not-so-much; overall great show!,
May 22, 2017
reviewer: from St. Louis, Missouri
I love Rent! As a Chicago native, I saw it when it first came to Chicago oh, so many years ago. I bought the CD by the original cast, saw the movie numerous times in theaters and bought the DVD. I know every song and line by heart - note for note. I was impressed by the cast, Maureen (a joy to watch), Joanne (her vocals are amazing), Mark (perfectly cast), Collins (man, can that guy sing!), and a female member of the ensemble who has a solo in the Seasons of Love song (that girl has pipes on her that you would not believe!). My only not-so-good takeaways were Roger (screams during most songs, and seemed tired), Mimi (couldn't hold the notes all the way through; dancing was great, but seemed unconvincing; Maureen stole the show from Mimi), (I hate to say this, but...) Angel was dynamic, but lost his breath throughout the numbers. So some of the lines came out rushed. The music itself seemed rushed, with blunt transitions between scenes. But I still gave a standing ovation! Worth it!

Rent,
Feb 27, 2017
reviewer: from Seattle, Washington
The performance was overall awesome! Mark, Angel, Collins, Maurine, and Joanne were that stars of the show. Mimi was a huge disappointment in every aspect, and roger was a bit over the top with his acting and got a little screamy when he sings. The show its self was just like the movie and the production was breath taking!!!! I have been such a huge fan and that was a huge highlight in my life was being able to see it on broadway! I loved it!!!!
