RENT

"Rent" wasn't quite live on Sunday night, here's why

Due to a major cast member injury, "Rent" on Fox used rehearsal footage.

The Pulitzer Prize-winning musical Rent was supposed to be live on Sunday night, but fans were given a disclaimer as the show began on FOX that some of the scenes had been pre-recorded. 

Theater Review: "Rent"

"Rent" celebrates 20 years at The Civic Theatre in San Diego.

Twenty-one years ago, Jonathan Larson revived the declining rock opera genre with his Tony- and Pulitzer Prize-winning “Rent,” which took Leoncavallo’s opera “La Bohème” as inspiration. This story of starving artist types opened on Broadway in 1996 and ran for 12 years.

Now it’s back on a 20th anniversary tour, and plays through Sunday at San Diego Civic Theatre.
