Rent fans will feel they’ve found the penthouse with this 2-Disc Special Edition featuring over three hours of bonus extras. Much of that time is spent paying tribute to the musical’s creator Jonathan Larson. His story is told in a documentary titled, No Day But Today, which is broken into five-parts: Days of Inspiration(Jonathan Larson’s formative years: childhood through college), Leap of Faith (Larson’s move to New York City and the projects/experiences that led to the writing of Rent), Another Day (the creation of the musical Rent from conception to final dress rehearsal), Without You (an account of the show’s amazing journey from success Off-Broadway to its current status as worldwide phenomenon, all in the wake of Jonathan Larson’s untimely death), and Over the Moon (the making of the movie and a tribute to Jonathan Larson).There is also a plug for the Jonathan Larson Performing Arts Foundation: National Marfan Foundation, five deleted scenes and musical performances, as well as a commentary by the director and cast. Audio tracks are available in English (Dolby Digital 5.1) and French (Dolby Digital 5.1), with subtitles in English and French.
