“Hess has worked hard with his cast to present a Rent with impact and contemporary meaning. Audiences are responding, eager to be reminded by Rent that a life can be measured in love. That emotion is evident in this production.”

“The key to the success of CCM's Rent is its ability to distinguish itself from the Broadway and later film versions. Director Richard E. Hess made a decision to restructure most of the production, giving CCM's Rent a fresh, modern vibe. The set and lighting are superb and a credit to CCM's technical theatre program.”
