Back when the RENT movie first came out, a bunch of the costume pieces were auctioned off on Ebay. At the time I was primarily focused on Collins and Angel, so I saved the pictures of all their stuff, but not many of the others. If anyone else happened to save any of them, were there any pictures of Maureen's tank top with the dragon on it?
Aside from the auctions, does anyone have any high quality images of Maureen's white tank top with the dragon on it that she wears during Take Me or Leave Me in the stage version?
I know this is a massive favour, but I would be over the moon if someone could help me out. My girlfriend's signed Rent book (like this one) was lost by a mail carrier during a move earlier this year. She loved that book, read it all the time, and has been crushed since it was lost.
Here's what I'm asking for: If someone is going to see Rent sometime soon, could they please pick up a book at the performance (or beforehand, I don't know exactly where they're sold) and get it signed by as many cast members as possible, then mail it to the address I will give in a PM.
If someone could do this for me, and for her, we would be eternally in your debt. In addition to masses of good will and thanks, I am willing to compensate 50 USD if there's someone who's willing to help me out :)
Please get in touch ASAP if you think you might be able to. Thanks!
Rent Star Wilson Jermaine Heredia Will Join Broadway's La Cage aux Folles
Tony Award-winning actor Wilson Jermaine Heredia, who made his Broadway debut as Angel in the groundbreaking musical Rent, will succeed two-time Tony Award nominee Robin de Jesús in the revival of La Cage aux Folles.
De Jesús, who earned his second Tony Award nomination for turning the role of inept housekeeper Jacob into a juicy urban firecracker, will play his final performance Feb. 13. The date will also be the last day for Tony winner Douglas Hodge and Kelsey Grammer. All three were Tony-nominated for their work; Hodge took home the Best Actor honor.
Heredia will begin performances Feb. 15, the same day the Broadway revival will welcome La Cage's original Tony-winning book writer Harvey Fierstein to the role of Albin and Jeffrey Tambor as Georges.
La Cage marks Heredia's first Broadway return since the 1996 Tony and Pulitzer Prize-winning musical Rent. He repeated his work as the drag queen-turned-guardian angel in the original London production of the Jonathan Larson musical and the 2005 film adaptation. His stage appearances also include Eli's Coming, The New Americans and The Tower.
Advertisement La Cage aux Folles, about a gay couple who run a St. Tropez drag club, features music and lyrics by Jerry Herman and book by Fierstein, based on the play by Jean Poiret. This production is choreographed by Lynne Page and directed by Terry Johnson, who won a 2010 Tony Award for his direction. It won the 2010 Best Revival (Musical) Tony.
Broadway stars and Rock stars joined the audience to dance the night away when Rockers on Broadway returned to BB Kings Blues Club last night, November 8th. Directed by Donnie Kehr, ROCKERS ON BROADWAY-Dance Party featured some of the hottest dance tunes from Elvis to GaGa, performed by Broadway stars and the Rock stars who made them famous. The concert benefits Broadway Cares / Equity Fights AIDS, Broadway Dreams Foundation, Broadway in South Africa, and The Bendheim Performing Arts Center Scholarship Fund.
The event starred Chris Barron from Spin Doctors, Randy Jones from The Village People, Fred Schneider from The B52s, Sirius Radio Star "Cousin Brucie" Morrow, Tony Award Winners Alice Ripley (Next to Normal) and Wilson Jermaine Heredia (Rent).
Getting closer! Only two more to go... or sort of one and a half, since I already have a Mimi prototype from a while back. The next couple of months are going to be pretty busy, so I don't want to promise anything, but I'd love to have the whole set up by the end of the year.
Also, there are now several ways to receive updates from Shady Creations. If you'd like to be notified when new items are available, including all things RENT-related, you can:
Has anyone heard any speculation of a tour dvd? I've already checked CB, siteforrent, and friendsofrent and came up with nothing, so figured I'd try here (even though this community is practically dead). I know there is already the movie, and the Rent Filmed Live on Broadway dvd...but a dvd of this tour would be nice, especially since it has Anthony & Adam reprising their roles, and there are rumors it *might* be the last tour. And there are some bootlegs I've already watched....but a professional dvd with special features would be awesome. I saw the tour in DC last week and it was amazing, so much better than when I saw it with Harley Jay, Declan Bennett, etc in 2006....and I loved that one a lot too. But that's just my opinion....overall I just think a dvd would be a great way to remember this tour, and see it over and over. Anyone know of any talk of a dvd possibly being done? Thanks!
