In celebration of Rent Live just 21 hours from now, we at New York Broadway Tours are proud to present throwbacks throughout the day of our favorite performances from the musical's incredible history. As many of you know, the late Jonathan Larson's Tony and Pulitzer Prize winning musical RENT was the groundbreaking Broadway show of the 90's which was at that time younger audiences were coming to New York City and experiencing Live Theater. Let's start out at the very beginning with the Pro-Shot reel featuring the original cast. This B-Roll was filmed during RENT's original 1996 Off Broadway run at the New York Theatre Workshop right before it transferred to its 12 year home at the Nederlander Theatre. For the original cast (who experienced that horrific day from hell when Jonathan Larson passed away and brought RENT to GLORY), it was the job that launched their Broadway careers. The OBC consisted of…

Anthony Rapp ("Mark"),
Tony nominee Adam Pascal ("Roger"),
Daphne Rubin Vega ("Mimi"),
Jesse L Martin ("Collins")
Taye Diggs ("Benny"),
Tony winner Idina Menzel ("Maureen"),
Tony winner Wilson Jermaine Heredia ("Angel")
Fredi Walker-Browne ("Joanne"),
Gwen Stewart ("Ensemble"),
Bryon Utley ("Ensemble"),
Timothy Britten Parker ("Ensemble"),
Aiko Nakasone "Ensemble"),
Kristen Lee Kelly ("Ensemble"),
and Gilles Chiasson ("Ensemble").

FUN FACT: Be sure to tune to Rent on FOX at 8pm EST because the original cast will be reuniting and making cameo appearances in the live production. Stay tune on where you catch them all.
