The final performance, which starred Renee Elise Goldsberry (ex-Evangeline, OLTL) and Jay Wilkison (ex-Riley, OLTL), was released today, Feb. 3. Titled "Rent: Filmed Live on Broadway," the DVD includes the cast's Sept. 7 performance live, as well as many special features.

The cast gathered at Life Cafe in New York to celebrate tonight.

Wilkison: I was very excited that the show was documented in such a great way. I will treasure it and always be grateful for getting to be a part of the show. It changed my life.
