No experience quite matches the thrill of a live Broadway spectacular seen up close and in person. Now, this stunning performance shot in High Definition puts you in the front row as the smash hit RENT brings down the curtain on its history-making, 12-year run! You've never had seats this great...never seen and heard each character so intimately...never shared every emotion in such a personal way! After winning four Tony Awards® and the Pulitzer Prize, Jonathan Larson's powerhouse musical tour de force entered the record books as the 7th-longest-running show in all Broadway history. In this unforgettable theatrical experience - made possible by special arrangement with the Broadway producers and Actors Equity Association - take an intimate journey through a single year in the lives of a small circle of friends and artists living their dreams, battling their demons and celebrating life on the streets of New York City's East Village. Meet would-be filmmaker Mark, sweet transvestite Angel

I have just watched this DVD, and I have to say, I have never laughed, cried and loved characters as much as this in a long time. This version could possibly be better than the movie, though I'm yet to see that without my copy freezing. Eden Espinosa's voice is just amazing, it has such power. And you will notice other actors, like Will Chase and Tracie Thoms, to name two. This is truly just an absolutely amazing version. With all the terrible musicals out today, like all the pre-teen stuff, RENT is one of those musicals that just really raises the bar. You will laugh your socks off, you will cry like a child near the end and you will really love it to pieces. Please, do buy this and you will surely not regret it.

If like me you were disappointed by the film don't let that put you off buying this DVD.
This is Rent how it should have been for those of us unlucky enough not to have seen the show live.

Theatre is notoriously difficult to transfer to film but this recording of a live show works really well. OK, occasionally I'd be itching to see the full set when they were close focused into the action but that's just me being picky.

The energy of the show is all there and the effects are well portrayed. The lighting is beautifully done as are all of the tech aspects.

Singing, dancing and acting is of the high standard you would expect from Broadway and the total effect is uplifting.

It's the next best thing to being there.

So, after 12 years on Broadway, the masterpiece of the late, great Jonathan Larsson has finally ended. This DVD is the closest many people will get to being able to watch this wonderful and emotional musical in its entirety.
It is fantastic that some of the understudies of the original 'RENT' cast finally got their chance to perform a show that they loved. Will Chase especially is fantastic as Roger, being able to capture to wide range of emotions very well, without losing the emotional attachment and sympathy the character generates.
The cinematics of this film are unbelievable captured brilliantly to show all range of ewmotions and expressions.
I can only say one other thing about this DVD - Buy it today because "There's No Day But Today!"

I saw Rent in Plymouth on the UK tour of 2001 and was almost bowled over. This DVD of the final US performance is a great document of a truly great and original musical. I love it.

What they say is true, every single word. "Rent" came to mean something very special for audiences who could so identify with the world it depicted. Afterwards, on walls inside and outside the theatre, they would write their heartfelt tributes. No longer did they feel alone, but uplifted - on stage there had been evidence others UNDERSTOOD.

After twelve such years, here we have the emotionally charged final performance. Actually it helps to explore the excellent bonuses before watching it - all the better to appreciate the strain the cast was under, everyone determined to do full justice to Jonathan Larson's memory. He, who created the show, never lived to see it performed. His parents were there on that last night, they visibly overwhelmed by the love that abounded. For years there had been another moving tribute to Jonathan. He himself had been too poor to afford theatre prices. There were so many others like him. The show's organizers before each performance would thus hold a lottery, lucky winners allowed in at a greatly reduced cost. Yes, here was a man to whom the cast owed everything. Now was the last chance to pay tribute.

The performance itself? Suffice it to say, they do him proud - even the hardest of hearts can scarcely fail to be moved.

"I can't believe this is goodbye." It isn't. Believe it!

Don't even hesitate buying this. An amazing musical, fantasticly caputed on screen. Didn't think they could top the film version, but nothing beats how it was originally performed. Truely stunning.
