Rent is such a great musical. Unlike all other musicals which sounds like a cd duplication of each other, Rent offers the descerning audience something a little more rock n'roll. It really brings out your emotions no matter who you are. It is based on a group of people who live in an apartment building together. At first they appear to have little to nothing in common but, by the end they are the best of friends and are using each other to lean on for moral support.
It is sometimes easy to forget that we are all people. That we do not know what is going on with someone else and that they have things going on too. We get so caught up in ourselves that we forget to think about others and offer them help or aid. Rent helps to remind us that we are all human. We all have our ups and downs. We all just need a shoulder to cry on from time to time. It really brings you back to reality.
Rent does have some very emotional parts. There are moments that will make you laugh hysterically. You get to see how all different personalities mesh together. There are also parts that will pull on your heart-strings. There are parts that you will feel so bad for the characters. You may even cry. This musical keeps you completely engaged. You do not want to get up for anything because you do not want to miss a minute. It make you change the way you think about life and the other people in the world. We may have many differences but we also have a lot on common. Rent helps to remind everyone that through our differences comes our society. We make up society as a whole. It is a wonderful musical that everyone should see at least once in their life. It may completely change your outlook on life.
