If California pursues a cap on rent increases, how many tenants will it help? No one really knows yet.

By Matt Levin, CALmatters What happened to all that talk about rent control? Less than four months after an initiative to allow cities to expand rent control failed overwhelmingly at the ballot box, and less than four months after then-incoming Gov. Gavin Newsom discussed brokering a compromise between tenant and landlord groups, no new legislation from lawmakers or specific proposals from the Newsom administration have been introduced to cap how much rents can rise. Legislators who have backed...

Glendale approves ‘right to lease,’ reining in landords as Southern California affordable housing stock shrinks

In an effort to address the city’s rising housing costs, the Glendale City Council has approved a “right to lease” ordinance requiring apartment landlords to offer tenants a one-year lease and provide relocation assistance if they raise rents above 7 percent. The ordinance, which was adopted in a 3-0 vote by the Council on Tuesday, will go into effect March 14.  Apartment complexes with fewer than five units will not be subject to the one-year lease requirement but must still provide relocation ...

How Do I Love a Problem Like ‘Rent’?

The televised Fox production of Rent Live,  other than the production hiccups that led to it being majorly pre-recorded rather than actually “live,” resurrected both the problems and affection I had with the original stage musical. The lyrics still resonated with me even if I now scratch my head at the story, characters, and the handling of the historical context. In 2007, I was a middle schooler in Texas exploring the concept of sexuality. As a middle schooler under a conservative father...

Fox Stands by ‘Rent Live’ in Face of Taped Rehearsal Snafu [TCA 2019]

With Grease: Live and A Christmas Story , Fox can claim at least 50% credit for bringing the live musical back to TV. NBC has done their share of live musical heavy lifting too. However,  Rent: Live was the first production that did not go according to plan. An injury prevented star Brennan Hunt from performing live, so a prerecorded dress rehearsal was aired instead. Speaking with the Television Critics Association today, new Fox Entertainment president Charlie Collier stood by the...

From ‘A Star Is Born’ to ‘Dumplin’: How Hollywood has Embraced the Art of Drag

When “RuPaul’s Drag Race” launched on Logo a decade ago, it was watched by so few people that the inaugural run was later lovingly dubbed “The Lost Season.” But as the years and seasons of that reality competition series went on, its popularity grew exponentially and its influence subsequently spread over other parts of the […]

‘Rent’ Star Brennin Hunt: ‘Maybe My Foot Broke for a Reason’

Brennin Hunt has had a whirlwind weekend. Hunt was set to play musician Roger Davis on Sunday in Fox’s live version of “Rent” — a role that he says “feels like home to me” because he, too, is a singer-songwriter and he knows what it feels like to try to write a powerful song. But […]

Did a straight man rip off ‘RENT’ from a lesbian’s 1990 novel?

TV Review: “Rent”

The writing was on the wall when Fox’s live production of “Rent” opened with a hefty asterisk: This musical event, despite every effort otherwise, was “pre-recorded earlier.” As the cast explained after the first commercial break, the actor in the lead role of Roger (Brennin Hunt) broke his foot during dress rehearsal the night before, […]

How ‘Rent’ Inspired a Multi-Platinum Songwriting Career (Guest Column)

I’ll never forget seeing “Rent” for the first time. My mom used to bring me to shows in New York, so I was used to “Phantom of the Opera” and “Cats,” which are great, but hadn’t really hit home as an artist. “Rent” was the most inspiring musical I had ever seen. When I was 16 […]

No rent money? No problem. Property management firm gives furloughed federal workers a break

Rachel Lopez of La Puente spent up a storm on Christmas gifts before the bad news came: She’d be furloughed. A month later, with no end in sight to the federal government’s partial shutdown, she was afraid she could be evicted. Then she got a letter from her landlord. Don’t sweat the rent, it said. You can pay us back after it’s over. And by the way, would you like a loan?

Inside the Production Design of Fox’s Live Version of ‘Rent’

Traditionally, when Jonathan Larson’s “Rent” is performed on stage, the production design is minimal, consisting primarily of some scaffolding and a sculptural tree, with a long table, some chairs and a trash can as key set decorations. When approaching Fox’s live broadcast of the musical, production designer Jason Sherwood knew he had to honor that […]

How Fox’s Live Version of ‘Rent’ Honors and ‘Enhances’ Jonathan Larson’s Vision

In the more than 20 years since Jonathan Larson’s “Rent” first debuted on Broadway, the conversation of adaptation has often come up: Film director Chris Columbus infamously brought the story to the big screen in 2005, Michael John Warren similarly shot one of the final performances of the original theater run in 2008, and talk […]

Broadway Pop!

I have fallen in love with Funko Pops figures -- they're so odd but so wonderful. In recent months, Funko has released several Little Shop of Horrors figures, as well as two versions of both Danny and Sandy in Grease, and big collections of figures from Beauty and the Beast and Aladdin.But wait, there's more! I was fortunate enough to happen upon Amanda Tang's Broadway Pop store on Etsy, and it was like I had died and gone to musical theatre memorabilia heaven. She has custom Funko Pops for Ham...

Glendale City Council adopts temporary rent cap

The Glendale City Council voted 3-1 early Wednesday after a marathon meeting to cap rent increases at 5 percent for a two-month period, according to a city statement. The rent freeze was adopted while the city studies a possible ordinance mandating tenants get one-year leases and other possible tenant protections.

Election 2018: California’s rent-control measure defeated

A hard-fought and controversial campaign to expand rent control in California, home to some of the priciest housing markets in the nation, was defeated Tuesday night. Proposition 10, the measure to broaden rent control’s reach by repealing a state law restricting its use, trailed throughout the night as it was soundly rejected by the state’s voters. “The stunning margin of victory shows California voters clearly understood the negative impacts Prop. 10 would have on the availability of affordabl...
