So I got to see Brittney Johnson's debut last Thursday and was absolutely blown away by her performance. I bought the ticket on a whim to see Jessica and Katie together, but literally gasped when I saw Brittney's name on the cast board. From the moment Brittney came down in the bubble I knew this would be an incredible, special performance. The crowd gave her a huge, extended applause (and a few loud cheers). Her NOMTW was by far the most beautiful I've seen vocally. Bri

I saw the tour a few weeks ago and was impressed by the cast. It was my first time seeing a live production of Rent, so I didn't have super high expectations going in.
Most of the cast is very young, some still attending or fresh out of college. What they lacked in experience was made up with an abundance of energy and heart. Lyndie Moe and Jasmine Easler were incredible as Maureen and Joanne. Aaron Alcarez was also a very strong Angel. I was disappointed to see an understudy
