Maureen
Are we packed?

Joanne
Yes, and by next week,
I want you to be.

Maureen
Pookie?

Joanne
And you should see,
They've padlocked your building,
And they're rioting on Avenue B.
Benny called the cops.

Maureen
That fuck!

Joanne
They don't know what they're doing.
The cops are sweeping the lot,
But no one's leaving.
They're just sitting there, mooing!

All
Yeeeeah!

To dance

Mimi
No way to make a living, masochism,
Pain, perfection,
Muscle spasms, chiropractors,
Short careers, eating disorders!

All
To film!

Mark
Adventure, tedium, no family
Boring locations,
Dark rooms, perfect faces, egos,
Money, Hollywood, and sleaze!

All
Music!

Angel
Food of Love, emotion, mathematics,
Isolation,
Rhythm, power, feeling, harmony,
And heavy competition!

All
Anarchy!

Collins & Maureen
Revolution, justice
Screaming for solutions,
Forcing changes,
Risk, and danger
Making noise and making pleas!

All
To faggots, lezzies, dykes
Crossdressers, too!

Maureen
To me!

Mark
To me!

Collins & Angel
To me!

All
To you, and you, and you, you, and you!
To people living with, living with,
living with
Not dying from disease!

Let he among us without sin
Be the first to condemn!

La Vie Boheme!
La Vie Boheme!
La Vie Boheme!

Mark
To anyone out of the mainstream,
Is anyone in the mainstream?
To anyone alive with a sex drive!
Tear down the wall! Aren't we all?
The opposite of war isn't PEACE!
It's CREATION!

All

WHOO!

La Vie Boheme
La Vie Boheme
La Vie Boheme
La Vie Boheme

Mark
The riot continues
The Christmas tree goes up in flames
The snow dances
Oblivious, Mimi and Roger
Exchange a small, lovely kiss

All
Viva La Vie Boheme
