Watch Clips From the Real Live Performance of Rent on Fox
This is the magic that the audience in Los Angeles got to experience last night.
As we probably all know by now, last night's broadcast of Rent was derailed by an 11th-hour foot injury that left Brennin Hunt, the production's Roger, incapacitated for the big night. However, in the most Rent thing that's ever happened, the cast performed a concert version of the musical for Fox's live audience, featuring a semicircle of folding chairs and a bare stage.
The majority of what America got to see from 8pm-11pm EST last night was footage from the January 26 dress rehearsal, but Fox is graciously offering a few clips from the real live performance, which is bound to get your feelings going this morning.
