Virginia G. Piper Theater
Sat, Nov 19, 2016
The iconic Pulitzer Prize-winning musical RENT went on to become an international phenomenon from its Off-Broadway beginnings. Fans everywhere relate to the show’s powerful themes and stories, and have connected with the characters and the actors who portrayed them.
As fans and theatergoers celebrate 20 years of RENT, the original “Mark Cohen” brings his hit solo concert to Scottsdale for one night only!
Anthony Rapp in Concert is a brand-new show featuring this star of RENT, If/Then and many more Broadway hits and films. With full band, including original RENT musicians, Anthony performs both original tunes and songs that have influenced their lives, from the rock world to Broadway hits. The concert also features RENT songs that brought Anthony to international fame.
Most recently, Anthony returned from the national tour of If/Then, repeating the role he originated on Broadway opposite RENT-mate Idina Menzel. In addition, Anthony has toured the country in concert and in his autobiographical musical, Without You, based on his book of the same name.
“For anyone who has ever listened to the RENT soundtrack it’s a joy to hear Rapps’ vocals in the flesh as he sings some of the biggest RENT hits. He places those songs from RENT along with a few of his into an emotionally charged context which reminds you just quite how incredible Larsons’ music and lyrics are.” – Huffington Post
