Night + Day Trivia: RENT winner

This weekend, the Jewish Community Center puts on a second week of a locally cast production of the musical sensation Rent. As an added bonus, actor Anthony Rapp, who played Marc Cohen on Broadway and in the movie Rent, will give a talk at the Center on Sunday afternoon.

Earlier this week, we asked readers: What is Rent based on, and how did playwright Jonathan Larson die?

The answer: Rent is based on Giacomo Puccini‘s opera La Boheme.

On the night before his musical opened off-Broadway in previews, Rent playwright Jonathan Larson died suddenly from aortic complications related to undiagnosed Marfan syndrome.

Congratulations to Ashleigh Gaunt, who was among the folks who got the bit of sad trivia correct and was the randomly selected winner of a pair of tickets to see Rent at the Jewish Community Center on February 28.

Thanks to everyone who played. A new contest and prize will be announced on Monday.
