As most of you know, I have been madly in love with the musical Rent ever since I was introduced to it by my vocal teacher in 12th grade. I was lucky enough to see the show for the first time on Broadway last year while on holiday in New York. So I am very happy to report that Anthony Rapp and Adam Pascal who originated the roles of Mark Cohen and Roger Davies in the Tony Award/Pulitzer Prize winning musical 10 years ago, are both reprising their respective roles for a six week run on Broadway at the Nederlander Theatre. The two, who were last seen playing these roles in the film version in 2005, made a choice that they would only come back for this special engagement if the other chose to.
If you would like to see a video interview of the two talking about their return, as well as views from the other current members of the musical (including former American Idol contestant Tamyra Gray who currently stars as Mimi), then just click here.
Anthony and Adam will both pay rent until September 9th.
