|Home: BigScreen Journal - Congratulations to our "Rent: Filmed Live on Broadway" DVD Giveaway Winner!|
The DVD was released on February 3rd, as was its high definition Blu-ray counterpart, and it contains the final Broadway performance of the long-running musical "Rent." The musical was turned into a feature movie in 2005, starring Rosario Dawson and Jesse L. Martin (from TV's "Law and Order"). Only one cast member, Tracie Thoms as Joanne, appeared in both.
While I'm sure that seeing a Broadway musical and actually experiencing it in person are two very different things, this release is the closest that most people are going to get to the live performance experience.
Set in New York City's gritty East Village, the revolutionary rock opera RENT tells the story of a group of bohemians struggling to live and pay their rent. "Measuring their lives in love," these starving artists strive for success and acceptance while enduring the obstacles of poverty, illness and the AIDS epidemic. RENT is Jonathan Larson's Pulitzer and Tony Award winning musical, one of the longest running shows on Broadway.
If you wanted to pick up a copy for yourself, but your name isn't Tom from Wisconsin, feel free to use the links below to get the show on DVD and/or Blu-ray disc from Amazon.com:
