Who else is obsessed with the musical "Rent"?? I am addicted!
...not that there's anything wrong with that (i.e. being obsessed with Broadway musicals, any musical).:rolleyes:

I saw that movie a while back when it came out and thought it was the biggest waste of time ever, everyone had AIDS, and from what I could understand (which was very little), it was incredibly depressing.

Also, I didn't really need to see 2 guys kiss, either.

Skip rent and go see the original that the musical is (loosely) based on:
La Boheme by Giacomo Puccini.
Or get the DVD with Luciano Pavarotti and Mirella Freni from San Francisco Opera. Pure musical genius.

PS
Miss Saigon is based on an opera as well; Madam Butterfly (also by Puccini).
Same for the broadway Aida, which is based on Giuseppe Verdi's Aida.

I had to go see it when I was in high school. I'd rather be in a shark attack than have to sit through it again.
