I have the last performance of RENT on DVD (legally- buy it on Amazon or Borders or something). Well, last night I thought it would be a heck of a fun time to watch it... at 11:30 pm. Since I watched the first act on Easter at 11, it was only fitting. Well, I had my craptastic laptop set up, put it on my bed, sat up awkwardly, and watched it.
And, like any human being should do when they watch this, I cried. Legit.
I'll Cover You (reprise): I got teary-eyed at this. Angel is one of the most beautiful fictional characters ever imagined, and I really missed her/him.
Goodbye Love: The version I had involved a lot of yelling, a lot of angst, and tears. I wasn't so fond of Benny, I'll admit, and on youtube a lot of people bash this Roger; he yells a lot and reacts violently. My way of looking at it: The guy obviously has baggage, and everything is just peaking- he's confused, he's angsting, he doesn't know what to do. He's going to Santa Fe to escape everything. Oh, right, how I reacted. The Mimi was amazing, and as she cried I felt a tear or two roll down my face as well.
Finale A: Everything is happy until Maureen comes in. I looked at Mimi and thought "OMG NOOOOO"... even though I know the ending. That teary-eyed feeling that 'What you Own' got rid of came back. And I really wanted to hear this Roger's interpretation of 'Your Eyes'.
Your Eyes: It was amazing. I gripped onto the laptop for dear life, and if my eyes weren't so dry from...well...heredity(?)...I would have been bawling. I cried. A lot. Even though I knew Mimi came back to life. Will Chase is a musical idol. That's just it; he simply oozes with amazingness that few in life know how to acheive. It melted my heart, and the interactions between Mimi and Roger made my heart flutter and break. Well, I've only seen the movie version prior to this, and this kick's the movie's butt. Beautiful.
Finale B: I mentioned that this was the last showing, so I think all the actors and actresses put their hearts into it. With melancholy, I hummed the last couple bars "no day but today". Then I realized that it was wayy past midnight and if my parents found me with my laptop at midnight they would be suspicious. (Yeah, I wasn't supposed to be on exactly, but c'es la vie.)
I rewatched the last half hour earlier today, had the same reactions BUT... I was logged in on AIM, so...well...
But it took all yearrr
CAMERA NOISE OF SOMEONE I KNOW LOGGING ON
As we said our goodbyes...
That kinda killed it.
Random: I have 2 diff perfumes on: Harajuku Music, and Vera Wang Rock Princess. LUFF THEMMMMMM! Too bad I'm broke... -_-
