DCU Drama Socity’s version of Rent at the Olympia

Rent at the Clubs & Socs Awards 2008, DCU

DCU Drama Society’s version of Rent at the Olympia — which is due to close tonight (Saturday) — is getting rave reviews from the media and bloggers. Here’s links to reviews and other coverage: here, here, here, here, here, here, here, and here.

Congrats to all involved.

I don’t know much about musicals, but I like what Damien Mulley says:

“Not bad for DCU students” is a bit patronising for what is one of the best musicals I’ve seen.

Too many people — both students and others — think that standards should be lower for students. Fine if one fails, but if one aspires or expects lower standards it’s not good start. Not thinking like this, I guess, is one of the reasons the people in DCU Drama Soc excelled with Rent.
