Rapp, who was last on Broadway in the revival of You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown, will perform at the New York theatre on Monday, June 3 at 8 PM. Accompanied by his band, Rapp will play a rock-n-roll set that combines new material with the group's favorites.
In a statement, Gordon Greenberg — who is the artistic director of the series — commented, "This is an incredible opportunity to see some of Broadway's most exciting young talent as individual performers in an up close and personal environment. For about the cost of a movie, audiences get a completely original evening with a major talent. We are committed to offering this sort of an intimate platform to performers, composers and lyricists who wish to explore new material in a comfortable setting."
The series began April 8 with a performance from 42nd Street's Meredith Patterson.
Rapp created the role of Mark Cohen in the Broadway and London productions of Rent. His other theatrical credits include You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown; Precious Sons; Six Degrees of Separation; Bright Lights, Big City; Raised in Captivity; Trafficking in Broken Hearts; Youth Is Wasted; Sophistry; and The Destiny of Me. The 99-seat Ars Nova Theater is located at 511 West 54th Street in New York City. Tickets, priced at $12, are available at the door in cash only; for reservations, call (212) 977-1700. Doors open at 7:30 PM.
