Rent Extended

| Filed under: Broadway Babies

rentlogo.jpg

Good news for you theater lovers heading to the NYC.

Rent will not close on Broadway June 1st, as previously announced.

The musical's producers said Wednesday that the last performance will now be staged on September 7th!

For those of you who rushed out to buy tickets to Rent in anticipation of its announced June closing, producers are giving you an option to attend later performances at the Nederlander Theatre,

According to a statement from the show, "In consideration of the Rent fans who have purchased tickets for the currently-announced final week, ticket holders wishing to exchange tickets purchased for performances from Monday, May 26, 2008 through Sunday, June 1, 2008 for performances during the extension period are welcome to do so subject to availability."

We may have to catch Rent one last time.

So are they bringing back the entire original cast or what?????

    The people at Nederland theatre are such jerks. I had ticket for the last matinee performance, 2 pm on 6/1. They won't exchange them, only for the last performance in the evening! I spent a lot of $ on the tickets just so I could go on the last day for nothing! The people working at the theater were so rude about it … I realize they don't make the policy and get paid crap, but they were just plain obnoxious. I'm pissed!

  43. Elle says – reply to this

    OMG IM SO HAPPY
    I MIGHT GET TO SEE IT THIS SUMMER
    YOU MADE MY DAY

  44. No-day-but-today says – reply to this


    44

    I would give everything I own to see the original cast preform Rent one more time live. For those of you thinking of going to see Rent in nyc before it ends, do it! I bussed it from Toronto to see that show and it was the best day of my life!

    PS> I dont understand all of you anti-gays. You're allowed to have your own opinions, but can't you chose a better source to relay your homophobia? This site is run by a gay man after all, if you hate homosexuality so much then why return to this site day after day and read about what he has to say and make stupid comments that only prove your lack of brains. Isn't there some sort of more appropriate site for you to make your comments? www.smallmindedloudmouth.com? Or I suppose you can keep reading everything Perez has to say, but it seems sort of ironic.

    OMGOMGOMG thank you sooooooooo much for posting this! If you hadn't then I probably wouldn't have found out until it was too late to exchange my June 1 evening performance for the Sept 7 one! So THANK YOU SO MUCH!

    I still can't believe the accolades this worthless piece of trash still gets. Only morons think this is a great play. Pure worthless garbage.

    I am a theater lover, and for that, I am disappointed that Rent isn't ending. I love the concept behind it, but the actual production itself pales in comparison to the quality Broadway productions.

    YAY!! i knew that they had to keep RENT on Broawday a little longer. its such an incerdible show and people need to see it. I really hope thety bring back the OBC cuz that is the best cast EVER!!
    NO DAY BUT TODAY!

  50. rent says – reply to this


    50

    Yes! That is great news Rent is The s#@! people should go watch it. Hopefully they bring back the OBC that would even make it greater! RENT #1 !!!!!!!!

    51

    Ugh, it's like a cockroach that refuses to die. The show sucks. I saw it with mostly the original cast and it was dreadful. You couldn't understand anything they were saying. Theater 101 - speak angled towards the audience, not directly to each other, or worse the back wall. Project your voice outward. It was possibly the worst production I have ever seen and I am including middle school plays in that. The only reason they are extending it is probably to try to save the Nederlander Theater which they are going to demolish after the show ends.

    This show is not going to close for a long time. They announced that it would close to make up for lost money from the strike that happened earlier last year. It's going to be a while before they shut down production, but thanks to all those people who spent $10,000 on a ticket!

  64. Babsbunny says – reply to this


    64

    Ok, seriously?
    I think that it's pretty appalling what they did to loyal theater-goers that spent tons of $$$ in order to get final show tickets. They should hold tickets for the final 2 performances and allow anyone with June 1st tickets to exchange them for a voucher for whatever the final date ends up being. You are buying those tickets to say goodbye to a show you love… it's not about just seeing it… it's being part of the final farewell. I'm glad it's sticking around for a bit longer, but appalling the way they're disregarding the people that they inconvenienced.

    Man, if they end up bringing back the OBC I'll have to scrounge up some money and fly myself down to New York to watch (hello, Idina Menzel! Fuck, if I could see her do Maureen live my life would be almost complete. All I'd have then is to see her play Elphaba live and THEN my life would be complete). Sadly, being 17 and from British Columbia I probably can't afford it. Anyone want to donate me some plane tickets?

    Re: Mo

    Clearly you've paid no attention to what's going on in the world of RENT.
    Most noticeably Anthony and Adam, particularly Adam, being complete crap in their return and doing nothing to boost ticket sales.
    Not to mention that Will Chase has already been signed to return as Roger from May-September.

    woof guys. ive seen rent about the same number of times that ive had sex. i saw it with the original cast in 1996 and i saw it when a.r. and a.p. came back and literally, they hated their lives. during over the mood, a.r. looked like he'd rather be in 2 girls 1 cup video. for serious though. i dont think there is going to be another attept at the reunion. at the 10th anniversary, idina and taye didnt know the show. i highly doubt taye is going to fly in to do the show with his gig in la. rent is generation x. spring awakening is generation y. lets move on and let the legend rest.
