It is great that there is so much demand for this production and I look forward to getting back out there again as Mimi“.
Rory Taylor commented said: “I had the most amazing time on tour with Rent – 20th Anniversary Concert in April and November and I am so excited that the public want more! I can’t wait to get back on the road and play the role of Roger again.”
