    A Life-altering Experience

    I will go as far to say that my love of RENT has altered my life in some small way.  The music, the lyrics, and the message is so gutterally human that I can't help but relate to it.  And all of the situations the characters are in show a different perspective on human...

    Seasons of Love Is Beautiful!

    Gotta be one of my alltime favourate musicals. It's just got such good music and stunning lyrics. Jonathon Larson was one pretty amazing dude. I love to sing  the songs out and about, I love it!! :D
