Well let's see, what has happened since the last blog.
I survived two terrific runs of RENT. I am so proud of my cast. When we got back together for the additional weekend, it was like we were never apart. I was disappointed that Shannon didn't return, but was utterly joyed when Phillip came in to replace him. Phillip definitely brought a new energy to the show!
