“When Rent opened in 1996, AIDS was very much in the public eye.Time magazine’s “Person of the Year” was AIDS researcher David Ho, and new drug treatments were helping AIDS patients live longer. Those milestones underscored the musical’s message that someone could live with (and not just die from) the disease, and that message helped the musical become such a culturally relevant phenomenon.”

This is A Little Priest from Sweeney Todd with Len Cariou and Angela Lansbury. But this is special. This is an soundboard recording from Sweeney Todd’s OPENING NIGHT ON BROADWAY on March 1, 1979! It’s a pretty rare recording! Enjoy it!
I love how amused the audience is!
