10,514,880 Minutes: How Do You Measure 20 Years of Rent?

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

It’s the musical responsible for student rush, cleaning up 41st Street, revitalizing the Nederlander Theatre, providing opportunities for countless Broadway debuts, inspiring the next generation of musical theatre creators, and making sure none of us will ever forget how many minutes are in a year. And it’s ultimately the reason we’re all here together for BroadwayCon. Join members of the original Rent family — cast, creatives, and friends — as they discuss where they were 20 years ago this week and how life has changed since then.
