Vanessa Hudgens & Neil Patrick Harris: Root for Rent!

Vanessa Hudgens & Neil Patrick Harris: Root for Rent!

Vanessa Hudgens & Neil Patrick Harris work it out during rehearsals as they prepare for Rent at the Hollywood Bowl later this month.

Aaron Tveit and Vanessa play Roger and Mimi in the hit musical.

Director Neil Patrick Harris told Broadway World, “I’m thrilled with the cast. With this gang, I’m hoping to provide an eclectic mix of experienced Rent performers, amazing new talent, and recognizable faces in unexpected roles. Of paramount importance to me, though, is honoring the piece as a whole – the music, the vibe, the creator – so that those who have never experienced Rent will be able to appreciate it alongside die-hard fans. We’ll only have one week of rehearsal, which I like to call ‘madness’, but as of now my hopes are very high.”

    Is it true that Nicole Scherzinger (lead singer of the Pussy Cat Dolls) is also in the cast of Rent? If this is true, then it will be awesome sexiness that this particular stage play will be presenting, with Vanessa and Nicole in the cast.

  • kyle

    Okay, i’ve seen the interview of the cast – Nicole of Pu ssy Cat Dolls is in it. That is so great!!! Both Vanessa and Nicole will really rock the audience with their sexiness. I can’t wait for this week-end for Rent!
