Rent in Concert proved that the music and lyrics of composer Jonathan Larson are inexhaustible in their richness and complexity...The lush yet biting orchestrations by Sean O’Loughlin were played with sublime resonance and clarity by the National Symphony Orchestra aided by a top-notch group of theatrical talent...Concert Director Sammi Cannold directed with a strong theatrical feel and sensitivity to the many moods of this classic and influential rock opera... hopefully, this concert will tour widely, and a new generation can see what all the very justified fuss is about! Timely issues and universal themes never grow stale. - Broadway World
