We knew it just couldn't stay away!!
Yes, Rent is returning to off-Broadway in 2011 and will be given a whole new production, complete with a different set and a whole new cast. "We love the original cast, but they're all on Social Security now," jokes a production source.
The original Broadway production cost $3.5 million and grossed nearly $300 million. The off-Broadway version will cost $1.5 million.
Original producer, Allan S. Gordon was inspired to revive the show after he attended a concert version at the Hollywood Bowl last summer. "The truth is, it really is timeless," he says. "It still works."
We agree! Now a whole new generation can experience Seasons of Love!!
Would U see the newly-revived Rent???
