No day but today (Rent Manila 2011)

Freedom wall (Rent Manila 2011)
I remember watching Rent at the Music Museum with my high school buddy in 1999.  Monique Wilson played Maureen.  Michael de Mesa and JM Rodriguez were also included in the cast.  I loved the songs and the production was amazing but somehow the whole play did not have a lasting impact on me.  I guess the storyline was too mature for me then (?).  Maybe I was a late bloomer :D
Erman has been curious about Rent so last weekend we watched 9 Work Theatrical's production at the Carlos Romulo Theater in RCBC.  We were lucky to catch the very last show of the season... And it was a really great show!  I think the performers were more emotional.  Some were crying by the time curtain call came.

Rent Rocks!  
Btw, I know everyone loves Seasons of Love, but this one (Light My Candle) is my fave song in the play :)
