Open auditions for the new, off-Broadway production of RENT are taking place today in NYC on Friday, March 18 from 11am to 2pm. Hundreds of members of a new generation of talent began lining up outside of New World Stages last night for a chance to star in this ground-breaking production of this iconic musical. BroadwayWorld stopped by the call line last night and early this morning to visit with the crowd.  Photo coverage of the festive bunch appears below!
