EVERYTHING IS RENT,
By A Customer
This review is from: Rent (Hardcover)
If you are a fan of this musical, then this book is a DEFINITE must have. It contains the full libretto with vibrant color pictures and behind the scenes photos as well. If you haven't seen this amazing musical, then 1)See It and 2) Buy This Book. Rent is more than a play about dying in today's society. It's about fear, loss, love, life, passion, friendship, success, humanity, compassion, generosity, optimism, hope, courage, and loyalty. It's about being who you are, not being afraid of love, making each day count, and living life to the fullest. Rent is about forging ahead, and not dwelling on the past. It's about being able to come to terms with your own emotions and not just "renting" them to "ape content." I can't urge you enough to buy this book. It's heartbreaking to know that Jonathan Larson never lived to see how his work touched so many lives. His short life only reiterates the fact that there really is "no day but today." Reach out to others. Love yourself. Be thankful for everything you have. See this musical, listen to Jonathan Larson's music, and buy this book. It's more than a souvenir, it's a memoir of THE BEST show on Broadway.
