The actors all sang a remixed version of “Seasons of Love” from the musical “Rent.”
The song pays homage to, well, nerds, for keeping the show and its spinoffs alive.
"There's one reason this franchise thrives," they sing. "The answer is: nerds! Thanks to the nerds! Shout out to nerds!"
Connections: Rapp, who kicks off the song, played Mark in the original broadway cast of “Rent,” and he even appeared in the “Rent” movie.
- The show also stars Wilson Cruz as Dr. Hugh Culber, who played the character Angel on Broadway, according to Playbill.
