Opening band was Paul Brill. Not impressed by Paul Brill himself, but the oboist, Katie Scheele, was pretty awesome.
Seeing Rent live was amazing. Not going to go into great detail, but key aspects: use of space/staging, parallelism of action, multiple focus/background viewpoints, actually including the homeless. The key dropping was slick. Ender's Gamed myself about Mimi at the end. Also, the Colonial has approximately the least lame balcony ever. Afterwords, thought more about Benny as a character. Also, ate Chinese.
