Rent Extended – Additional 141,120 Minutes to Catch the Broadway Musical

[singlepic id=56 w=320 h=240 float=right]Although the official website does not show it yet, the Broadway musical hit Rent will play to September 7, 2008 – according to Playbill. That’s an additional three months you have to catch the show. If you are absolutely, positively sure you will not be able to see it live, you can always rent or buy the film version.

Hat tip to Perez

Here is one of the songs that rings particularly true with me:

One Song Glory – Rent Musical – Lyrics

One song
One song
Before I go
One song to leave behind

Find one song
One last refrain
From the pretty boy front man
Who wasted opportunity

One song
He had the world at his feet
In the eyes of a young girl
A young girl
Find glory
Beyond the cheap colored lights

One song
Before the sun sets
Glory – on another empty life
Time flies – time dies
Glory – one blaze of glory
One blaze of glory – glory

In a song that rings true
Truth like a blazing fire
An eternal flame

One song
A song about love
From the soul of a young man
A young man

The one song
Before the virus takes hold
Like a sunset
One song
To redeem this empty life

Time flies
And then – no need to endure anymore
Time dies

  1. I saw Rent in NY in June. (“I like NY in June!”) Absolutely fabulous. Bought the movie when I got home. Different, but also very good. I was somewhat surprised to see most of the original NY cast in the movie! I’m curious about the image here. It looks to be the set in the Nederlander. Is it?
