Adam & Anthony Live
Adam Pascal and Anthony Rapp first met during the iconic, groundbreaking Tony and Pulitzer Prize-winning play RENT, handpicked by the late Jonathan Larson for the roles of Roger Davis and Mark Cohen, respectively. Since then, they have become two of the most well-respected and well-loved performers in musical theater. In possession of possibly the most powerful pipes of any genre, Pascal routinely raises ovations mid-song with his soaring, emotional delivery. Singing with grace and gravity, Rapp is by no means unstated as he digs deep to find the emotional center of a song, and has an uncommon connection to his audience.
Adam & Anthony Live showcases these two stars performing songs from their solo albums and amazing careers, including clever new arrangements of Jonathon Larson’s timeless tunes from RENT. Adam’s MEANDLARRY set, featuring Musical Director Larry Edoff, offers original material as well as classics from CABARET, CHESS and cool and hip arrangements of classic standards.
“What the crowd really wanted was the RENT songs, and they got ‘em. Pascal’s “One Song Glory” was a soaring piece of singing, and Rapp’s “Without You” was an emotionally heart-breaking effort. And when the two joined forces – and bands – for a rousing “Seasons of Love” as the final encore it was simply a glorious thing.” – Times Union
