Here, the New York Daily News goes backstage with Wendt to check out the new production. Wendt explains that throughout Rent's journey, minor changes were made to the costumes, but the overall look remained the same. In the new production, Wendt is able to give Jonathan Larson's rock opera a complete makeover. Wendt and associate costume designer Lisa Zinni explain the thought process behind the changes and how they make the actors as comfortable as possible.
Besides new costumes, the newly conceived production also features new choreography, projection design and a new set.
