ADAM PASCAL & ANTHONY RAPP LIVE AT MARTINIS ABOVE FOURTH
Saturday, April 13, 2019 8pm
An intimate unplugged show, Adam and Anthony will deliver solo sets featuring both original tunes and songs that have influenced their lives, capped off by performing a few of the iconic hits from where it all began—RENT.
RENT has gone on to become an international phenomenon from its off-Broadway beginnings. Fans everywhere relate to the theme and stories of RENT and certainly have connected with the characters and the actors who portrayed them. From the original cast, Adam & Anthony have remained close friends, while each have gone off to do additional great work in film and on Broadway.
In 2018, Anthony returned to CBS TV’s Star Trek: Discovery for the series’ second season while Adam reprised his Broadway “Shakespeare” on the National tour of the hit musical, Something Rotten. Previously, Anthony starred in If/Then while Adam starred on Broadway in Disaster. They continue to tour with Acoustically Speaking — A 20-Year Friendship.
