Anyone who really knows me knows that I’m a Rent-head. One of my earliest posts was about driving from Columbus, Ohio out to Ohio University in Athens with my girl Lala Tamago on a short notice whim just to see it again. I have my souvenir Playbills, t-shirts, soundtracks. I think I’ll have to add this DVD to my collection.
I saw the movie, but it paled in comparison. I do prefer watching the stage play on video for some reason over a movie remake of a stage play or musical. Like, I love Tyler Perry‘s series of stage plays on DVD more than I like the movies he’s made from them. It feels more authentic to me to see it acted out on stage as opposed to all of scenery and special effects of the silver screen.
Here’s the announcement. Straight from my email inbox…
