'Rent: Live' - See Over 100 Photos from the Show!

While most of Rent Live wasn’t actually live, it was still an incredible production with some amazing performances from cast members like Vanessa Hudgens and Brandon Victor Dixon.

There are so many great photos from the event and we had to share them with our readers!

Rent Live didn’t air live as previously planned due to Brennin Hunt‘s injury during the dress rehearsal on Saturday night. He broke his ankle and was unable to perform on Sunday night, but thankfully Fox filmed the dress rehearsal, so that was aired instead.

At the end of the performance, Rent Live finally did go live and the original Broadway cast of the musical appeared on stage for an incredible finale.

'Rent Live': Watch Vanessa Hudgens & Kiersey Clemons Sing 'Take Me or Leave Me' (Video)

Vanessa Hudgens belts out the song “Take Me Or Leave Me” along co-star Kiersey Clemons during the production of Rent Live.

The song is an act two showstopper between Maureen and Joanne. After Joanne gets jealous of her partner’s flirtations with other women, Maureen tells her to “take me or leave me.”

The show was actually not live as anticipated due to star Brennin Hunt‘s injury at the end of Saturday night’s final dress rehearsal. Fox ended up playing the recording of the dress rehearsal and then went live for the finale.

Rent Live's Kiersey Clemons Talks About Playing a Queer Black Woman, Just Like Herself

Kiersey Clemons is opening up about getting to play Joanne Jefferson in Rent Live, a queer black woman just like herself.

The 25-year-old actress has been open about her sexuality since the beginning of her career and she’s had the opportunity to play queer characters in the past as well.

“I’ve played Black queer characters more than once or twice, which a lot of queer people do not get to do,” Kiersey told Out. “I got a tweet and someone said like, ‘This person only plays queer people.’ We never say anything to white men about just playing straight white men who drink whiskey — and they do it all the time!”

Kiersey has been a fan of Rent since she was a teenager and has always found Joanne to be “inspiring.”

“When I was young, I thought that Joanne was so cool,” she said. “I was thrilled by anybody that looked like me.”

Kiersey also commented on how times have changed since Rent debuted in 1996, though the musical is still relevant to today’s political climate.

“Over that amount of time, to see technology and all these things change and yet our country is still kind of the same in how we treat people with illnesses or disabilities or because of the color of their skin or their gender identity or sexual orientation, the themes in this show are still relevant today,” she said.
