[ # ] Will Fox lose its dignity with Rent?
May 12th, 2017 under Fox, RENT

In less that 525,600 minutes Fox will be adapting Rent for the small screen with a live version sometime next season. The Broadway musical is about AIDS, drugs, homosexuality and being as free as you can before the turn of the millennium in NYC. I just don’t know how they are going to do it for broadcast TV and keep the feel that the late Jonathan Larson was going for, you know La Vie Bohème, even though his estate gave their blessing for the production.

The only way I would approve of it, is if they get the original cast members to do it. But instead they will go with cast members from Glee. No one can see One Song Glory like Adam Pascal. His voice was made for Rent.

Now, I thought I would hate Grease Live, but I enjoyed it. I knew I would detest Rocky Horror Picture Show and I am still flipping mad over it. And not in a Dr. Frank-N-Furter way. Well kind of like how he felt towards Eddie sort of way.

Anyways, I will try to be positive, but Rent is one my favorite plays and I just don’t have enough faith in them to get it right. How do you feel about them doing Rent?
