Are you seriouse?? Baz thinks Jonathan ripped off his idea or something? That's really sad, because Baz is such an amazing director...

about the Scottis hPlay, what my Drama teacher told us we had to do was this: Spin around three times and say "may fair thoughts and happy hours attend thee," three times. We didnt have to leave or ask permission to re-enter.
Also, before each performance, my school always got in a circle and we would yell "energy, energy, energy!" while (gently) pounding the back of the person in front of us. Is that werid? =)
Ok, bub, thems are fightin' words! come over HERE and say that!

First of all, just because YOU keep trying to force your opinion on me, why does that mean I need "perspective"?? Yeah, *i'm* the one who needs a life ::rolls eyes::: ookay
Plum, I never said that there wasn't ANY 18 year old who could do the roles. Read my post. I said, i'd RATHER see an OBC member than an 18 year old who couldn't handle the part. There's a difference.

Broadwayguy, why so much hatred and negativety?? Really, if you don't love Adam, that's fine, but obviously a lot of us adore his voice and think he's very talented, so there's no need to be rude and call him a "hack" of all things.
I actually feel bad for Columbus. No matter what he does with this movie, people will whine and complain. If he casts total unknowns, people might complain about the lack of talent and then everyone will wish he'd cast the OBC. But then the same people comp
Why in the world are you THANKFUL for that?? that comment seemed kind of uncalled for.
But WOW, it was seriosuly so emotional to see and HEAR Jonathan on tv. The man had such a great personality and was so alive...I have a cassette of Jon singing a few early versions of RENT songs, but, on tv it sounded a lot clearer and it just gave me goosebumps. No, Jonathan wasn't the best singer, but you could fee land hear how much passion he put into his

For crying out loud...Is it really the end of the world if Nicole gets cast!?! As it's been pointed out, she was obviosuly a theatre person before she auditioned for AI, and for all we know, she could have auditioned and landed the role without having been on tv. I think she's got a really good voice and could pull the character off ,but I doubt she'll be billed and hyped as "scooter girl now in rent!"
If one more person says RENT is "dead" i'm going to shoot someone. Seriously. People

Oh, Mikey, you know how much I love you!!! You are right on everything (except, I DO think RENT is the end-all, be-all show sent from the Musical Theatre gods...so there! =P lol)
Honestly, i'd be PISSED if RENT didn't end the way it does. The RENT Bible has Jonathan explaining why he has the ending the way it is, and I agree with him. The ending doesn't mean Mimi is going to live forever. She could have died the next day for all we know, because most of the actresses i've seen don't mak
I didn't know John Hickok was in this!! As in, AIDA's original Zoser? for some reason it just strikes me as funny picturing Radames' evil dad trying to woo Jo March...LOL his voice just sounded so different on the clips i've heard of the songs. This is gonna be a great production!!!

aww that review made me wanna hop a plan and get to the Neder :::sniff::: It's funny, because even though Matt Caplan has done this show for so long, i've only seen him as Mark ONCE and that was back in 1999. I saw him as Roger in 2002 and then in March, Seb was on instead =)
I'm still tired of people talking about this "spark" or whatever the show is losing. Whatever, I won't waste my time arguing =) The show still kicks ass and that's all that matters! woohoo!!!

So, are Basketcase and I the only two people on the planet who didn't go gaga for the Shrek films? I don't know if i'd call them "bad", but, I think the animation is really quite ugly (though I appreciate all the hard work that goes into that type of thing) and I laughed, but, The story really lacks any likeable characters. There's really no drama because you don't give a crap what happens to anyone. Or maybe tha twas just me?

I don't understand what's so difficult about this song. Elphie sits on the bed, looking uncomfortable, and G(a)linda bounces around all happy and cute. Whats the big deal?
