Christmas Eve at 9 P.M.

Roger and Mark receive a call from their former friend and roommate Benny, who bought Mark and Roger's apartment building, as well as the lot next door after marrying into a wealthy family. He has plans to evict the homeless from the lot and build a Cyber Studio in its stead. He tells them last year's rent is due ("Tune Up 2") but Mark and Roger refuse to pay their rent ("Rent").

  • Roger’s old band was called the Well Hungarians. In the Film adaptation, the name was changed to Mute, which was Adam Pascal's old band.
  • Anthony Rapp kept the famous scarf he wore as Mark in the original Broadway show. It could not be used in the film, however, because the white was too bright for the camera. Instead he wears a navy and light gray scarf.
  • The characters of Ali, Gordon, Pam, and Sue in the Life support meeting are named after Jonathan Larson's friends who died of AIDS.
