I am looking forward very much to seeing Rent onstage in London and am thrilled that DVO is playing Maureen.  I am quite new to Rent and have only recently seen the movie version which I liked.  I have a few questions:

1) Which Cast Recording is the best?  
2) Are the actors in the film from the original stage version?
3) How much of it is based on La Vie Boheme? (is it the story or the melodies?)

Any help would be much appreciated.

1) Probably the OBC if you want one in English and want the entire show

2) Both Rosaria Dawson (Mimi) and Tracy Thoms (Joanne) are new, all the other leads are OBC

3) Story only, there's only one song from La Boheme that's occasionally used (Musetta's Waltz)
