Twin Cities for RENT

That’s right, we’re to be more for RENT than anywhere else in the country. Rent, the musical that is. It’s returning to St. Paul for its eighth visit, whose Ordway Center for the Performing Arts holds the record for the number of times hosting the show. Each time it comes, some of the shows sell out, but there are still tickets available this time around. It’s a short visit, only showing from the 17th to the 22nd of June (that’s Tuesday through Sunday), before continuing on to Stamford, CT. If you’re a fan of American Idol, Anwar Robinson, one of the finalists from Season 4 is in the cast, as well as the winner of South African Idol, Heinz Winckler. Kevin McCollum, the producer of Rent, is the former president of the Ordway Center, from 1995-2002, when he stepped down to become the artistic producer for the Ordway. I’m sure that means that the performances at the Ordway get that little extra touch, and why it keeps coming back here.
