Review: Rent, St James

I'm not one to deny anyone their fandom and Lord know Rent has some of the most devoted of the lot. But for whatever reason, the show has left me cold every time I've seen it, increasingly so in its determination to defend artistic excess.





I was bought a ticket as a Christmas present so I was able to go and test my feelings once again but no change, no matter how good Layton Williams' performance was. So for once, I'm just going to leave it here.
