We went Thursday night. The cast was truly amazing. Have seen the play several times here and in NYC and i must say the voices of the current cast were as good as any show. What a treat!

ABSOLUTELY STUNNING! I’ve wanted to see this live for years and this was worth the wait. Cast & crew applause to you !
Peter Reimer from Vancouver, British Columbia
First time seeing RENT live and I thoroughly enjoyed every minute. The standing ovation was well deserved. I will definitely see this show again!

SOME STOOD OUT; SOME NOT-SO-MUCH; OVERALL GREAT SHOW!
I love Rent! As a Chicago native, I saw it when it first came to Chicago oh, so many years ago. I bought the CD by the original cast, saw the movie numerous times in theaters and bought the DVD. I know every song and line by heart - note for note. I was impressed by the cast, Maureen (a joy to watch), Joanne (her vocals are amazing), Mark (perfectly cast), Collins (man, can that guy sing!), and a female member of the ensemble who has a solo in the Seasons of Love song (that girl has pipes on her that you would not believe!). My only not-so-good takeaways were Roger (screams during most songs, and seemed tired), Mimi (couldn't hold the notes all the way through; dancing was great, but seemed unconvincing; Maureen stole the show from Mimi), (I hate to say this, but...) Angel was dynamic, but lost his breath throughout the numbers. So some of the lines came out rushed. The music itself seemed rushed, with blunt transitions between scenes. But I still gave a standing ovation! Worth it!

The performance was overall awesome! Mark, Angel, Collins, Maurine, and Joanne were that stars of the show. Mimi was a huge disappointment in every aspect, and roger was a bit over the top with his acting and got a little screamy when he sings. The show its self was just like the movie and the production was breath taking!!!! I have been such a huge fan and that was a huge highlight in my life was being able to see it on broadway! I loved it!!!!

We saw it Saturday afternoon and really enjoyed it! Angel, Maureen, Joanne and the girl who sang the solo in Seasons of Love have amazing voices! Mimi was a huge disappointment voice wise since Out Tonight is a favorite and she butchered it!! We were top balcony, so we really couldn’t see faces. Will get closer seats next time.

RENT AT HEINZ HALL REVIEW 3/27/2018
Saw rent tonight, sorry but for the 20 year anniversary, it just didn't quite hit the mark. The orchestra was way too loud and at times it seemed the cast were screaming their lines. It was hard to understand the majority of the songs. I know it was the opening night here, but to my wife and I we were very disappointed. Would not take children under 15. I didn't remember it being quie that vulgar. The price was a bit high for the evening.
