Advertisements I knew that "Rent" was being done as the next live musical production for television, but somehow I missed that it was coming up so soon. Based on what I've read, it sounds like they've taken some cues from the highly successful "Jesus Christ Superstar" broadcast over on NBC. What little they're saying about it sounds like it'll be more similar to the original Broadway production than the previous live musicals that were styled like old-school live television shows. The only part I'm wondering about is how much they'll have to censor it. There are multiple places throughout Rent that are questionable whether they'd get past "standards and practices."
