I saw Anwar in RENT last night.
I will be honest and say he was the weakest vocally in the cast. That being said I liked him a million and one times better than I ever did on American Idol. His part required him to sing much more in his lower register, and should really do that more often.
I have seen RENT far too many times at this point and the reprise of I'll Cover You, which is usually the most emotional part of the show for me, was missing the passion that it normally had. His acting moments were brilliant though.
