RENT at the Footlight Club, Jamaica Plain: Bravo!
Saw RENT last night at the Footlight Club. Sara Jane Burns stood out as as Mimi and was awesome.

We were in the back row, and must have been sitting in front of her friends, because they were screaming and howling at her gyrations. So funny.
We're big fans of RENT having seen it in NYC, and Sara did a great job, as all the cast did. The music was great too. Guitar solos were dead on.
RENT was the best play ever at the Footlight, and we've been going for 11 years.
It was also the first night that The Footlight Club used their new body mics. It was great to be able to hear the actors so well. There were only a few times where the mics were not up in time, and it was obvious, but for the most part the new sound system is a huge improvement.
I hope they bring in more shows like this in the future. Rock of Ages maybe?
Rent: April 1, 2, 8, 9, 15 & 16 @ 8:00pm, April 10 & 16 @ 2:00pm
