“Rent” fans will get an extra treat Sunday night during Fox’s live broadcast when stars from the original Broadway musical enjoy cameos, including Idina Menzel, Anthony Rapp and Taye Diggs.

Fox confirmed Sunday that stars from the 1996 Broadway production would appear alongside the current cast. Fans first got clues that the original cast would be present when Menzel and Rapp posted on Saturday what seemed like photos from the “Rent Live” set, including signs to their dressing rooms.
