"RENT" at the Hollywood Bowl

Neil Patrick Harris directed an "all-star" cast (not sure who all is in it, though) for a short revival of "Rent" at the Hollywood Bowl this weekend.

Here is a video of "Take Me or Leave Me" with Nicole Sherzinger as Maureen(formerly of the Pussycat Dolls) and Tracie Thoms as Joanne (Joanne in the movie version):

I actually think they did a fine job with the song - at least they both have the singing chops to do the music justice.
Other celebs in the show included:
Vanessa Hudgens as Mimi
Wayne Brady as Collins

Here is an ET interview with the cast:

Another interview with Neil Patrick Harris:

Here is a video of Aaron Tveit (Roger) and Vanessa Hudgens (Mimi) singing "Another Day".

More as I find out more. There have been calls for a cast album, so we'll see what comes of it. Would be interesting to see/hear the whole thing.
