Personally I'm not keen on the design of Rent, I'd rather there had have been no set than the confusing set that there is. Ok, it's been a while since I've seen it and I didn't really follow it too well (bad sound levels, bad performances). Anyway, I've just been reading the script and I think it's one of those shows that could be designed pretty elaborately when revived in future years. Disagree/agree?

Rent is a show that really requires a unit set to flow smoothly.

I think the design serves it's purpose -- ram shackle urban and almost thrown together in appearance.
The sound does need some redesign most definately and ther have been numerous instances of cast perormers lacking in the acting department and the show DOES suffer from that.

Personally, I think it is a very creative set if you know exactly what it is.
