We are Rent fans from wayyy back, and although the rest of the cast went BEYOND our expectations (especially Angel, Collins, and Joanne), we were so disappointed in the casting of Mimi. Her voice was sub par, but beyond that, she lacked grace and rhythm. Her dancing was awkward and uncomfortable. I'm sorry if this review is harsh, but it really affected our enjoyment of the show.

3.0 star rating R-D from Las Vegas, Nevada


Music was great. Performance lacked quality. Some singers very loud, hurt the ears. The odd signers off key! Very crude in many scenes. Some overacting. Director should take a second look at his performers. I gave the stars for music and a great set not for performance. A little rough? Perhaps... Many of us left during intermission....

3.0 star rating from Louisville, Kentucky


Oh how I wanted to love this show and have been waiting so long to see it but, unfortunately, my husband and I left feeling let down. The singing was garbled and we could not make out most of what was being sung. Certainly there was an amazingly talented group of performers but, the overall production seemed disjointed and unintelligible.

I like RENT its theme, music and character. If you've never seen it; then, please do! I've seen several versions and different actors portray the character. I think the one I saw last night was not at the top of the list; Springfield Theater Center did a whole lot better job of portray what is a universal and award winning show.

I’m from the U.K. and absolutely love RENT. Whilst I was over visiting Boston I saw the show wad touring and thought I’d give it a go. I paid $115 for a ticket and didn’t mind this as it was my last night in states and it’s a broadway tour! I’m saddened to say the cast and production just did not hit the mark, in what felt like an amateur show. Positives: chorus line, ensemble numbers, standout performances from Collins and angel. Negatives: lack of chemistry between cast, poor casting of mimi and roger (the 2 worst performances in the show), lack of passion and mediocre acting. Although it did improve a little more in act 2, for a broadway tour this was way below par especially for $115 a ticket. Sadly left disappointed and wished I’d had time to see a broadway production whilst in New York.

My wife & I had never seen this show, so we went to see if it could live up to the hype. Meh. A dull show with dull music. The cast gave a valiant effort, but the show is just dull.

2.0 star rating Therese from Baton Rouge, Louisiana


My husband and I saw the April 20 performance of RENT at the Saenger. The set was great, and the music was also. However-I have seen RENT 3 other times, and this was by far the worst. The Roger actor was lagging behind the music from the very beginning and wasn’t “with it” at all. In fact, just before the second act began, it was announced that “The part of Roger will be played by ...” —- I have never seen an actor replaced halfway through a musical! Wow! The entire second act was just off and anti-climactic. How much of that was due to Roger’s replacement, we don’t know. The new Roger was fine, gamely playing the part even though he had DIFFERENT COLORED HAIR than the original Roger. The other main actors were good not great, except Angel, who was wonderful, and Mark, who warmed up and improved as the play went on. If I were you I’d skip this production.
