Although some controversy was sparked, last night's "live" performance of the Tony- and Pulitzer-winning musical RENT was received fairly well by audiences and fans across the country!
While issues arose last minute following the foot injury of actor Brennin Hunt (who plays Roger Davis in the musical), the show must always go on, and the heavy-hitting cast certainly served up an iconic and beautifully-choreographed performance!
With musical theater stans and the gay community packing the areas around any viewing party or TV screen, it makes sense that Twitter would be ablaze with opinions and reactions to the newest addition to FOX's live-show catalog...

If only Jonathan Larson had known where his dreams would go. Our stories have the potential to live beyond us. Tell good ones. Live good ones. Love often and loudly. #RENTLive

A scene of a Latinx drag queen and a queer black man kissing and singing to each other on national television is a WIN for us all ❤️. #RentLive
