Rent Quotes by Jonathan Larson
Finale B lyrics - Rent Cast
Since the s, American film musicals have been increasingly concerned with subjectivities that escape heteronormative categorizations, asserting their gender through a performance that gestures to a major fluidity between gender positions. Rent Chris Columbus, , adapted from the cult stage musical by Jonathan Larson, is a paradigmatic example of how this representation of gender is interdependent with the remapping of the chronotopes of the genre to reflect this fluidity. The focus of the film on a group of HIV-positive queer friends in New York in , affected by the loss of loved ones because of the AIDS epidemic and by the on-going gentrification of the Lower East Side, is key to the queering of classical chronotopes. The analysis of some of the musical numbers of the film will show how a linear, historical and essentially heteronormative temporality is substituted by queer alternatives: time is constructed both as an intensified present in response to the AIDS outbreak, and as a sedimentation of different temporalities in connection to non-heteronormative kin relationships. The film could be then used as a springboard to critically reflect on the commodification of queer sub culture through a process that has brought Rent into the mainstream, in connection to the socio-cultural context of its production and reception.
It is the last song of the show, coming immediately after "Your Eyes. The song begins with the character Mimi being miraculously revived after a near-death experience resulting from living on the streets and drug abuse. During the song, the character Mark screens the film he has been working on throughout the course of the story, and all of the cast members begin to congregate on the stage. At the end of the song, the entire cast sings "No Day But Today. In the film adaptation of the musical, only the main cast sings the song as Mark's film plays. The actual film ends with the final shot of Mark's film, which is a shot of Angel.
