Giant News: Singing Jett Rink Getting Closer to Making His Dallas Theater Center Debut
But this afternoon, The New York Times offers an update: Oskar Eustis, artistic director of the Public, tells Patrick Healy they're presently workshopping the piece -- and have thus far trimmed about an hour from the monster musical, which is very good news. And right now, at least, Michael Greif is directing -- and he's the same guy responsible for the original Broadway production of Rent. As for when it'll debut in Dallas -- "next winter." And then? "How fast we'll go from Dallas to New York City depends on how much progress we make on the show between now and then," Eustis tells The Times. Till then, then, a sneak peek from the '09 production follows on the other side.
