The thing that terrifies me about this new production is the rumours of drastic re-writing, setting it in contemporary London?!? As the movie showed, if you screw around with Rent it doesn't work. Keeping it close to the original works. I'm not a rabid Rent-head who goes "OMGWTFBBQ! YOU CAN'T HAVE THE DOOR STAGE-RIGHT!!! IT'S NOT WHAT JONATHAN WANTED!!!" But I can't stand changing something that works just for the sake of making changes. Rent on Broadway works (for the most, I don't mind losing the parachute-games) and there's no reason to update a perfect period piece. It's NOT contemporary. Just because it's only set 15 years in the past doesn't mean that that historical setting should be abandoned.
*edit* thought occurs to me - I want to see Rent in the New London theatre. Especially if they reverted to the Cats-style layout, with the gantry seating, it could merge the auditorium and set very nicely, really draw the audience in to the action...
