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!
