Romance is the most common theme in the world of musicals. The vast majority of the couples are typical couples- meaning heterosexual. What about the ones that are the complete opposite? I decided to mention those today.
Angel and Collins- SPOILERS
They are a gay couple in Rent. Both of them have HIV, and make the most out of their relationship. You clearly see how much they love each other in “I’ll Cover You”. Even when Angel is dying, Collins is still by his side- you notice this during “Without You”.
Maureen and Joanne
In my opinion, this is the most problematic relationship in Rent. For starter’s they seem to fight the most. Maureen is actually crazy, but still has a sweet side. Joanne can’t stand her at times. You clearly can see how problematic this lesbian couple is during “Take me or Leave Me”. They literally keep on breaking up.
