Sometimes Things Just Speak to An Entire Generation

I was introduced to the musical "RENT" as I sat in a high school gym and watched our yearly talent show. 4 students stood up and sang "Seasons of Love" My reaction to the song was that he lyrics and music were beautiful and I wanted to find the source. I asked one of the students where they got the song, he looked at me as if I should have known what it was from, who wrote it and in what key they sang it in, eventually after I said how great he was and complimented his exquisite taste in music he told me. I rented the soundtrack...ironic, i know. I fell in love with it. The music, message and energy I gained from it were really inspiring. Several years ago I go to see it performed on broadway and it was a great experience. The soundtrack is still a staple in my collection of Cd's in my car. Alas, all good things must come to an end as RENT is no longer playing on broadway and my kids will never have the chance that I did.

I was lucky enough to see it in NYC two summers ago.
