Pascal was a Tony Award nominee for playing the musician-songwriter who has muse issues. Both he and Rapp re-created their roles for the film version of the 1996 musical by late composer-lyricist-librettist Jonathan Larson.

Rapp plays young filmmaker Mark Cohen in the East Village-set show inspired by Puccini's La Boheme. The actors will be with the show for six weeks.

"American Idol" veteran Tamyra Gray is Roger's Mimi.
