Most of the cast meme era of the original were Gen Xers, and many considered it Rent! the quintessential playwright for Gen Xers, as Hair was for Boomers back in the 60s.

In this version of Rent!, the cast members were primarily Millennials, but the plot of the play still took place in the 90s. Nonetheless, the play did rather.... ok I’m the ratings. Nothing spectacular, but not necessarily bad either.
