End of an Era...

No Day Like Today, the smash Broadway hit Rent is closing the doors for good. When the show closed a few hours ago, it had played 5, 124 performances, it had won the Pulitzer Prize and the Tony Award for Best Musical. It launched the careers of Idina Menzel, Anthony Rapp, Adam Pascal, & Jesse L. Martin. The show was written by Jonathan Larson, who tragically died at the age of 35 on January 25th 1996, the day before the shows first Off-Broadway preview.
