RENT! Live

Dear People Who Filmed and Edited RENT!,

Thank you so much for taping the final performance. It was wonderful to be able to see the show on Broadway one last time. It was really exciting to see some of the original cast members show up at the end. Wilson in a kilt was especially nice. :)

However, please teach your camera crew to follow the actors and to stop cutting off the tops of their heads. It was a little disconcerting to have actor's heads and/or bodies just out of frame. We in the movie theatre are not able to see the full stage and thus adjust where we are looking.

Also, please remind your editors that this is a Broadway show and not a 2 hour music video. I would have been much happier with more full stage (or at least wider) shots and less (slightly out of frame) close-ups. Having seen the show many times, I know that there were several times where interesting action was happening on a different part of the stage, but you were focusing on a specific actor or two.

That being said, thank you again for this opportunity to see RENT! on Broadway again. It was a great birthday treat.

Some love,
athene
