Totally agree -- was just commenting on that with my friend. We discussed how, in a way, the 2019 RENT reflects the highly commercialized and polished NYC of 2019, compared to the grittier, more real NYC of the 90s matched more by the original production.

Can't get excited about this cast at all.  Brandon Victor Dixon maybe, but not the rest.

You'll need to 1) trick your internet browser into thinking you're in the US (look for articles online; it may take some troubleshooting but it's doable), and 2) visit https://www.fox.com/live/. It may be just streaming on there, but you may need a cable login (in which case, you should ask an American friend).

Is anyone going to the taping? I just found that I am and I am curious what to expect.

Idina posted too with signs that read IM, DRV, and FW... If this was supposed to be a surprise that the original cast is taking part in some way, theyre not very good at keeping secrets...

Bad audio as they will be miked for the cameras so their voices won’t be blasting on speakers to avoid feedback.  You’ll barely hear them from where you’re sitting.  

Enjoy the excitement of being there.  If you’re hoping to experience it like at a theatre, you’ll be quite disappointed.

RENT Live! is being done on the FOX lot in Los Angeles.  

Daphne’s alleged party is in NYC. 

Unless she can magically transport herself in seconds, it’s logistically impossible to be on both coasts in a span of less than 3 hours.

Why do I have a feeling that the original cast's participation was pre-taped?

It is not. I am friends with a few members on Facebook and they’ve posted pictures tonight specifically saying they’re at a dress rehearsal tonight.

That's not true at all. In 1996, Bloomingdale's had a clothing line inspired by (and endorsed by) the original Broadway production of RENT. In 1999, the Canadian cast of RENT were featured on the cover of a flyer for The Bay, one of Canada's largest department stores. The Bay's parent company, Hudson's Bay Company, now owns Saks Fifth Avenue. So in actuality, absolutely nothing has changed. RENT has always claimed to be gritty while being very commercialized. I love RENT, but let's not pretend it's not in the same business as any other show.

According to someone on reddit who claims to have been on the run-through, they removed all f***s, some s***s and stuff like that. Contact still in. The guy playing Roger sprained his ankle during What You Own and after a 20 minute stop, he decided to come out and finish the show sitting on a table. Apparently Seasons of Love B is a goner.

edit: ironic how the board auto-hides bad words

4 new songs from the soundtrack are available for listening.
RENT sounds bland. Mark and Roger sound very much alike.
The girl playing Mimi rocks the hell out of Out tonight. Brava!
Maureen sounds like Minnie mouse. She has the chops, though.

My main reason to watch this now is for the OBC.
A Chorus Line revival played its final Broadway performance on August 17, 2008. The tour played its final performance on August 21, 2011. A new non-equity tour started in October 2012 played its final performance on March 23, 2013. Another non-equity tour launched on January 20, 2018. The tour ended its US run in Kansas City and then toured throughout Japan August & September 2018.

I’m not finding the event on their website anymore so maybe it was cancelled? 

 

Edit: Disregard. I found it. And she’s still listed as hosting.

I was at the final dress rehearsal last night. They definitely replaced the cuss words, but kept as much original content as they could ("dildos" is still La Vie Boheme). With that said, the changes honestly didn't really bother me much as I felt the spirit of Rent was well there. I felt like the actors did enough to do the characters justice but didn't really add anything new to the roles, aside from Jordan Fisher, who plays Mark (I thought he gave the character a fresh new take, in a good way. Very impressed at his performing skills!). The guy playing Roger rolled his ankle before the finale/last commercial and there was an announcement saying that he'll be ok and was going to go in and complete the run-through. They had to carry him back out and he was on the table with his leg elevated during the last three songs. They recorded the entire dress rehearsal and it pretty much felt like show night, so I wouldn't be surprised if they are the rehearsal footage during the heavily-featured Roger numbers that require a lot of footwork for him (especially What You Own, which is an amazing number in the production!) if he's not well enough.

Spoilers about stage (if you did not already know the set-up):

I think you guys will be pleasantly surprised at the set and the whole production. Everything takes place in one studio/sound stage with different moving parts and the audience in the middle of it all. The 360 stage and the sets were cleverly placed and the camera work is going to look amazing on TV. The production is very innovative and brings a new level to theater/broadway on TV. They utilized the stage, sets, and actors well for a TV event. You can tell they had the TV audience in mind!. The audience is very much present. I kind of enjoy the live musical events with an audience because it gives it more of a lively feel to it vs. doing the show in a studio with just the actors and sets.

With all that said, lol, give it a chance and go into it with an open mind. Granted, my experience was heightened because I was actually there, but they did have screens during moments they weren't filming on our side of the stage and from what I saw, it looks like it transferred well on the screen.
