***The characters here are extremely specific, if only because we know who they are. They are such thinly-veiled versions of Jason Robert Brown and his ex-wife that she sued him over it, which forced a delay and a change in circumstances with the original production and forced him to make changes to the piece to make it slightly less specifically them, or, more likely, slightly less specifically her.****

I'm generally aware of that whole situation, but I've never researched the specifics. Do you know if, in the original version of the show, Jamie was in fact a composer/lyricist rather than a novelist? There's no reference to that in the Wikipedia entry, FWIW.

As to your comments about RENT, I strongly suspect that SOME people felt that way about the casting of Mark in that production, even if no one ever said them to you :-)
