One Song…Glory

August 13, 2007

Saw RENT.

Saturday Night.

With him and him in their returning roles as Roger and Mark.

And her as Mimi.

Awesome.

I cried.

A lot.

Seeing the original cast members reviving their characters in the flesh was hypnotizing. I have been dying to see this happen and it actually did…

The show, of course was fantastic and the atmosphere was electric. Everyone was thrilled to see ‘Roger’ and ‘Mark’ do their thing. And they do it flawlessly.

When ‘Roger’ came on stage grasping his guitar at the beginning of the show, the audience went wild. They didn’t even let ‘Mark’ begin speaking for at least five minutes. Rockin’.

It was truly magical. Nothing like Broadway Baby!

Before the show, we ate at BLT Fish. Talk about yum. Holy tuna. De~licious! And the waitstaff…very attentive and polite.

Then, after the show we visited some friends in Chelsea. (For a Penthouse apartment, youda thought they had a lot of space. It was teeny-tiny and the RENT! Shit.)

Had some drinks and by 1am I thought I should be headin’ home. I mean really.

So, of course I slept most of Sunday, much to The Pro’s chagrin. He claims every time I go out late…The next day is a waste.

Listen. Whateva.

I had a farking blast and I am in awe of that show. I want to go see it again before Adam Pascal’s and Anthony Rapp’s run is up…I doubt it but wishful thinking.

And how was your weekend?
