For many of us who have pursued a life in theater, there are key moments in our lives when we remember the impact of viewing a particular play or musical. As a child growing up in a small town in Iowa, I didn't get a lot of opportunities to attend new plays, so one of those moments came when Iowa Public Television showed a live videotaping of the Broadway production of Into the Woods starring Bernadette Peters. I remember thinking, "Now, here's an exciting musical! Someone who finally asked the question - what happens after happily ever after? I want to do this!" These moments are different for each individual, but there are some productions that resonate with an entire generation. RENT was just such a show and we're looking for YOUR stories about this revolutionary musical and its impact on you. I'm starting things off with a reprint of an article from the New York Times by Lin-Manuel Miranda. Please feel free to add your stories in the comments section below! We look forward to hearing from you.

From Lyric Arts Resident Director Scott Ford
Good suspense leaves us heavily invested in plot and character. We hate it and love it at the same time. We vicariously experience danger and anxiety while looking forward to the satisfaction of the eventual resolution for our hero.
