Year 2, Book 39

39. Without You: A Memoir of Love, Loss, and the Musical Rent by Anthony Rapp
Written by the actor who played Mark Cohen in the original Broadway production of Rent (and the movie). The book chronicles his experience of being in Rent while his mother succumbs to a long, slow death from cancer. I found it particularly interesting to read the stuff about the early versions of Rent when it was still just a workshop production. I give it an 8 out of 10.
