RENT THROWBACKS: Even if the main star is not feeling well, the show must go on. We just have one question to ask…Who do you call when the lead is out?!…. THE UNDERSTUDIES!!! In most Broadway shows, the understudies are usually in the Ensemble 8 times a week but also cover some of the Principal roles in the event on of the stars is absent. We at New York Broadway Tour give all understudies and standbys so much credit getting ready to go on at a moment's notice. Sometimes the understudies is even as amazing as the main actor.

Check out a little Behind the Scenes video documented back in 2007 by veteran cast member Kyle Post as he filmed his day in the life going on for an appropriate person who also loves to DOCUMENT REAL LIFE himself…. "Mark Cohen" in the Broadway production. You'll experience Post's full 2 show day routine and a little backstage tour of RENT's 12 year home at Broadway's Nederlander Theatre.

FUN FACT: Post (who later went on to appear in the original casts of both Spider-Man On Broadway and Kinky Boots on Broadway) joined the Broadway cast in 2006 as a Swing (an understudy for Ensemble tracks) plus covered both the lead roles of filmmaker "Mark Cohen" and songwriter "Roger Davis". He stayed through the show's 2007 closing night. This show marked his Broadway debut.

Don't you just love it when understudies go on?!! Who remembers seeing Kyle in RENT?
