The musical about rough inner-city life complete with sing-alongs and dance sessions, Rent is a celebration of love, happiness and living life, and its currently at the Orange County Performing Arts Center, with original cast members from the Broadway show. But its not at Corona Del Mar High School, where there were protests against a planned performance of Rent earlier this year because of the storys portrayal of gay characters and prostitutionbut thats neither here nor there. Those of us who understand that life isnt all Leave It to Beaver will bring our happy asses to the show and project our appreciation for the arts for the whole of conservative Orange County to witness.
