How the film should have been,
This review is from: Rent: The Final Performance - Filmed Live On Broadway [DVD]  (DVD)
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.
