Seasons of Love
RENT 20th Anniversary Cast
Seasons of Love

This is the 20th anniversary cast of RENT singing Seasons of Love. Listen to this, if only for the soloists. The male soloist BROUGHT THE HOUSE DOWN, GUYS.

During this song, Angel smiled and nodded at me because I was crying and clapping along. I was in the pit, FRONT ROW. Yes, only a few feet away from the cast.

Amazing, amazing, amazing.

Les Amis as lines from "La Vie Boheme"

Enjolras: “Revolution, justice, screaming for solution”
Combeferre: “The opposite of war isn’t peace, it’s creation!”
Courfeyrac: “Mimi Marquez, clad only in bubble wrap, will perform her famous lawn chair handcuff dance to the sounds of iced tea being stirred”

Joly: “To people living with, living with, living with, Not dying from disease!”
Feuilly: “no way to make a living”
Bahorel: “To riding your bike midday past the three piece suits”
Jehan: “Angel Dumott Schunard will model the latest fall fashions from Paris while accompanying herself on the 10-gallon plastic pickle tub”
