A photo of the 3 Argentinian friends in front of the Konex: Me, Lindsay, and Matt from left to right
I had an amazing time two weeks ago when I took my friends to see RENT! in Buenos Aires. I can say this is easily one of my favorite Broadway shows to date. It was really exciting because the musical was completely in Spanish. I didn't ever have the opportunity to see this show in the US, and it was way cool to see it here.
The Konex is a cultural center that is in the heart of Abasto, which is a part of Once. The center was renovated from what seems to have been a warehouse. This was a really neat thing since Rent takes place more or less in a warehouse too. One of the great things is that part of the actual theatre blended into the set.
Like in New York, they have a Sorteo or raffle for the best tickets in the house--front row. Here it takes place every performance day at 5PM. I went earlier that afternoon and entered my name and received FRONT ROW TICKETS!!! I also should add that they only cost me $8US. (Take that, all my European Study Abroad friends...jejeje...bet you can't beat that in Denmark). I definitely would like to go back. Matt, Lindsay, and I surely had a great time!
