"I was a big, big fan of Rent while growing up in New York. I loved seeing the show and listening nonstop to the cassette tapes (yep). For my 14th birthday my friends upgraded me to the CDs (purchased from Sam Goody of course). I remember sitting in the Nederlander in March 2008, watching the show, knowing that just a few weeks later, I’d be up there playing Mark and making my Broadway debut. That was pretty unreal."
