RENT – “Halloween”

I saw RENT tonight, performed by BU students who wholly embodied their characters and truly felt the music. I’ve seen RENT several times and this particular performance was raw and real. There are so many incredible lines in this musical, but tonight these particular words really struck me… sang by Mark, the character who hides behind his work, who almost doesn’t let himself feel.

“Why are entire years strewn
On the cutting room floor of memories? When single frames from one magic night
Forever flicker in close-up on the 3-D Imax of my mind?

That’s poetic, that’s pathetic…”
