A Tale of Two Rents (or "We're not gonna pay...")

Interesting Big Apple statistic brought to you by this week’s New York Magazine that made us raise our eyebrows:

Average rent for a non-doorman one-bedroom Manhattan apartment when the Broadway Musical RENT closed in September 2008: $2,820

Average Rent when a RENT revival began last month: $2,937.

Man, we pay a lot of cheddar for our homes in this borough (Although, to be fair, The Big Adventure has lived in four apartments across NYC and has avoided getting close to that “average”)

On a related note, if you are interested in seeing the Off-Broadway Revival of RENT at New World Stages we suggest that you try your hand in the Lottery. Over a decade ago or more, RENT was a pioneer in Rush Ticket sales for Broadway shows for deserving, eager younger fans who couldn't to drop a lot of cash for the full price seats.

Lottery seats to the revival go for $25, but you'll need a little bit of luck and timing on your side and can only grab them the day of the show
