I don’t know a whole lot about musicals.
That’s always been my M.O. As a stage manager I prefer working on plays, however I have a certain musical stuck in my head right now: Rent.
Before, I didn’t know anything about the show, only the assumption that everybody in the show had AIDS.
I was right about that.
I started doing PR work for KAT’s production of it this winter and I saw performances of it at Keegan and in Kensington.
Now it’s stuck in my head. Better that than Lady Gaga right?
I’ve come to learn however that I’m not alone in my new love for Rent- it seems like everybody loves it. So I guess I’m finally joining the party.
Songs stuck in my head right now? Another Day and What You Own:
What is it about Rent that makes me love it so much- the catchy music? The 90’s garb? The scaffolding? I’m not sure- but at least I know it’s not because everyone has AIDS.
Are you a Rent fan?
