Saw it last night and left at the break. Could not understand the words in many of the songs. Could not follow the story line. Many people left at the break, as I saw them coming out of the INB onto the street. The actors were very good, I in no way want to put them down, hats off to them.

Went to the 12/14 performance in Cincinnati. This could have been so much better... not
sure anyone advised the cast of what AIDS was like in the '80s and '90s. There was no
chemistry on stage, especially during Act 1. Roger and Mimi - take some voice lessons!
Off key was more frequent than on-key. And Angel needs to go to a few drag shows to
see what a real drag queen is like. Act 2 was a bit better, but overall, I've seen better
high school productions. This is the second poor show we've seen in the Broadway
series this year (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory was the other). Seems like casting for
these shows is becoming increasingly difficult. For the current high prices for tickets, we
will be reconsidering our choice for 2019/2020. Sure hope Hamilton has a worthy cast.

Oh my.....left at intermission and have NEVER done that before in my life! Kiddos, your sound
was bad. Couldn't understand a word. Mark and Roger needed enthusiasm for your
characters. Benny, you need to play in JesusChrist Superstar; your voice can handle it
because near as I could tell you have the range. Mimi, you tried, but it's a hard demanding
part. Angel, you were my delight! And Maureen? There's a difference between enthusiasm
and over acting. You accomplished the later. Joanne, Light My Candle....it's a hard song.
Look y'all, you're young and RENT is big. And this time you just didn't knock the ball out of the

GOOD BUT COULD HAVE BEEN BETTER
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.
DMT from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
This is my 4th time seeing Rent since it first opened in the late 1990s. This 20th Anniversary Touring cast lacked diction and chemistry. If it were not for the wonderful performances of Collins and Angel we would have left at intermission. My husband, seeing Rent for the first time, left frustrated that he didn't understand their words and lost so much of the story line.

DICTION AND TRANSITIONS
I've seen Rent several times, this version almost seemed unrecognizable, and not in a good way. Re-imagined song arrangements fell flat, odd transitions in areas that seemed highschool-ish. Many of songs lyrics inaudible or rambled through. Just odd.
Elizabeth from Columbus, Ohio
Act 1 was boring and hard to follow, lacked character chemistry and honestly, Maureen's solo was so over-reaching it was hard to watch. Act 2 was better because it opened with the show's most memorable song (Seasons of Love) , also because the plot thickened and it was shorter than the first. I appreciate the energy ANY stage actor has to give night after night, and there were some good strong singing voices in the cast, but overall it felt like a period piece that didn't age well and I was relieved when it was over.
