I am looking for a video or dvd of the original RENT musical?

I was wondering if there is an recording of the original musical RENT. NOT the movie. I have seen that. The stage production. If possible with the original cast.

Update:

I have seen recordings of CATS of the original broadway stage production. So the so have some out there.

    To my knowledge, Broadway plays are not recorded on DVD for public sale.

    If you happen to live in or around NYC, you might be able to find it at the New York Public Library for the Performing Arts at Lincoln Center. They have videos of almost all original cast Broadway musicals. Check out the website below.

    Live Broadway shows are not recorded for public sale of viewing. They do record them for archival purposes.

    Now that said there are places you can go to see clips from people who have illegally videotaped shows, i.e slipping in camcorders and such in their coats and hiding them from ushers.

    You maybe able to find something like that if you search the web
