Last night I decided to try my luck at Lotto, and with over 100 people there, I ended up winning!! I really thought I didn't have a chance in hell. But the show was amazing and pretty much an entirely new cast from when I saw it weeks ago. Cast list:

Roger - Jay Wilkinson
Mark - Colin Hanlon
Mimi - Antonique Smith
Maureen - Ava Gaudet
Joanne - Crystal Hall
Collins - Destan Owens
Angel - Justin Johnston
Benny - D'Monroe
Mrs. Jefferson, SOLolost - Diana Kaarina

The show was almost sold out, and there was massive energy all around!! Really an amazing audience and the cast was on fire. I had never seen most of the lead roles, and I was impressed with everyone. Antoinique has a lovely sexy deep voice, and played Mimi very giggly, girly, and it was cute. The HIGHLIGHT of the night was La Vie Boheme, when Jay flicks his guitar pick at Colin, and Colin CAUGHT it! He got the most amazed look on his face and he mouthed "I caught it!" everyone was laughing over it. Diana has the most amazing voiuce, I am totally in love with her! Wow, she's really going places.
Ava looked right at me when I MOOed with her lol it was great. This show is in fantastic shape, and I don't just say that cause i'm a fan RENT last night (11/4) cast list, mini review!! I was sitting next to a couple nice girls who lurk here, so if you girls are reading this, come on out! RENT last night (11/4) cast list, mini review!!

That's all I can think of for now. I'm still very giddy from a wonderful night of theatre.

Thanks for the review. I'm planning to see Rent in early or mid December with my Drama Lit class. It's all good. re: RENT last night (11/5) cast list, mini review!!

I saw Cary September 13th, didn't realize he was gone! I do love Cary, but Colin AND Jay both totally stole my heart! They have a great chemisry together, and the Goodbye, Love fight was totslly heartbreaking...Jay and Antoinique are so cute together, there really was a big attraction between those two. I think this is the best cast i've seen, out of the 10 or so times i've seen the show re: RENT last night (11/5) cast list, mini review!!

Cary has only been gone for a month due to illness. He should be back next week (Nov 14th-19th).

glad you enjoyed the show. Matt and Merle were absent due to Karmine Alers wedding that day.

haha that cracked me up reading that Colin caught the pick. hmm...Jay can apparently throw better than Shields.
hmm...

Does anyone actually know what's wrong with Cary? I know he's ill, but it's been a pretty long recovery period!

Wow, what a random cast. But very cool, since the performances were fresh, I'm sure.

Matt and Merle were at Karmine's wedding? That's so cute. I guess it's a bit much to invite the entire cast re: RENT last night (11/5) cast list, mini review!!

That's so funny that Colin caught the guitar pick. I'd be excited too, that requires serious skills.

If you scroll up, you'll see that Matt has not left the show, nor was he sick:

Matt and Merle were absent due to Karmine Alers' wedding that day.

I think Cary was sick and now has some extra time off.

YAY Ava! She's my favorite Maureen. I would love to see Diana in this, I love her voice! It's still a little weird to me that she's in Rent because I'm forever going to attach her to Eponine.
