Watch The Original ‘Rent’ Cast Return For The Live Broadcast

I have never cried so hard until the original Broadway cast of Rent performed a reprise of the iconic "Seasons of Love" on the Rent Live! stage. It honestly brought too much happy memories to see Idina Menzel (Maureen), Adam Pascal (Roger), Daphne Rubin-Vega (Mimi), Jesse L. Martin (Collins), Anthony Rapp (Mark), Wilson Jermaine Heredia (Angel), Fredi Walker (Joanne), and Taye Diggs (Benny) on one stage.

They were later joined by their younger counterparts. See a snippet of the performance below.

Meanwhile, Adam walked up to Brennin Hunt, the live musical production's Roger and offered what could only be a message of support. Aww!

The Nashville actor suffered from a broken ankle during the final dress rehearsals which left the producers deciding to air pre-recorded footage in some portions instead of the promised live performances. Nevertheless, it left me wading through a river of nostalgic tears.


Shut it all down! The original cast of #RENT absolutely killed it.

With that said, can we do another Rent Live! once Brennin gets better so the whole production team and the cast can redeem themselves? We'll start the petition!
