I saw the Sunday matinee performance of Rent today, on the 20th Anniversary tour. I did not feel a great desire to see Rent in the '90s, but decided in the '00s I had been an idiot. Today I fixed that.

I'm no theater connoisseur, but this seemed like an easy-ish house, to judge from the cheering after almost every number.

I went with K, who has heard the soundtrack and seen the movie, but isn't a musical person. I have some serious reservations about the movie version, most significantly the choice of Chris Colombus as director. Columbus has absolutely no idea how to convert between media, which is why the first two HP movies are awful and the third convinced me that anything with Alfonso CuarĂ³n's involvement is worth my time and money.

I had a good time. I'm not expert enough to say whether the individual performers did a good or just okay job, but I found it a good use of my Sunday afternoon.

A few notes: I have listened to this soundtrack for almost 20 years without seeing the musical staged. )
