The Fox live broadcast of Jonathan Larson’s Tony and Pulitzer Prize-winning musical RENT aired yesterday (Jan. 27), starring Vanessa Hudgens, Brandon Victor Dixon, Jordan Fisher, singers Tinashe & Mario and more.
Tony Award-nominated director Michael Greif, who staged the original Rent, is overseeing the stage direction while Rudzinski (Jesus Christ Superstar Live in Concert, Grease: Live) is the live television director. Tinashe, who is taking on the role of Mimi Marquez, has also contributed to the original soundtrack of the television event with a song called ‘Out Tonight’. It sounds like a track straight out of the 90s teeny pop world. Listen below.
Tinashe has parted ways her former label RCA Records but hasn’t announced her next move yet.
