You've seen Rent more times than you can count. You've seen 21 Rogers, 12 Mimis and 57 “Seasons of Love” soloists (if you count the Benny tour and understudies, and you do count them!). Or maybe you aren't an obsessed Renthead; you simply love the show because it moves you and it rocks! But are you the ultimate Rent fan? Yes! Yes! Emphatically yes? Well, Broadway.com and JetBlue counter with a simple retort: prove it!” The prize? A trip to New York City that'll drop you into the audience for the musical's final, tearful goodbye performance on September 7, a night which promises to be the Broadway event of the decade.
Here's what you need to do:
- Film and upload your own video stating your case. Why you? Sing, speak, dance or just be creative in proving you are the ultimate Rent fan. Remember that Broadway.com is a family site – abusive or inappropriate content, no matter how bohemian, will be taken out of the running. Videos can be no longer than two minutes. Videos longer than two minutes are automatically disqualified. All video submissions must be received by Thursday, August 14.
- All approved videos will be posted below, so come back and check out your competition—and share your video with your friends and family.
- Broadway.com will announce ten videos as finalists on Friday, August 15. These ten videos will then be judged by a panel of special guests , who will ultimately decide which fan they think deserves a spot in the VIP final show crowd.
- The grand prize winner will be announced on Friday, August 22.

I'm still in denial about this closing tbh. Whenever I'm in NYC (which is about 4-5 times a year) I always see this at least twice. I've won the lottery seats every time except for twice. I've probably seen the show 20 times and I love it every time, even when Joey Fatone was in it..though I'll tell you right now that he sucked so hard.
