"Without the strong presence of its ensemble cast of Alex Armesto, Tommy Betz, Dana Cullinane, Lauren Kent, Chris Marth, Natalie Szczerba and Aubree Tally and its band of Lori Kay Harvey (keyboard), Dennis Davenport (keyboard), Chad Greenwald (bass), Bradley Mellen (bass), Karl Wohlwend (guitar) and Tomasz Jarzecki (percussion), the production would be indistinguishable from other performances of RENT." - Broadway World
