RENT at CT Repertory

Roger Davis (Kyle Szen) and Mimi Marquez (Kaitlin Monte)

Timothy Ware’s beautiful singing voice highlights his performance as Tom Collins in CT Repertory Theater’s Nutmeg Summer Series production of Rent which runs through June 6. His smoky rendition of “I’ll Cover You” is delightful.

Also turning in a solid performance with good energy is Joshua Wright as Mark Cohen. Rounding out the musical by Jonathan Larson are Kyle Szen (Roger), John Shuler Quentermous (Angel), Corey Bradley (Benjmin Coffin), Kaitlin Monte (Mimi), Lauretta Pope (Joanne) and a miscast Rachel Leigh Rosado (Maureen).

Watch out for a rather vulgar, milk-squirting rendition of “Over the Moon.” The show is directed and choreographed by Art Manke who makes use of the house aisles as well as Michael Anania’s nicely designed set. For tickets and information visit www.crt.uconn.edu or call 860-486-4226.
