If you are in the area, do not miss Anthony Rapp on Tuesday the 25th. You might remember Rapp from his younger days in Adventures in Babysitting or Dazed and Confused. Of course, he is most well known for originating the role of Mark Cohen in Rent.
He is being brought in by the university honors program. He will be talking about his book, Without You. I just recently read it (thanks Laura). It was a good read and he puts it all out there.
The theatre department gets him during the afternoon for a monologue workshop. I’m taking the afternoon off from work so that I can attend.
I’m pretty excited about the whole thing. I didn’t know the first thing about Rent until the movie came out late last year. I saw it three times. I saw Rent on broadway when I went to NYC over the winter break.
Rapp will be speaking in McComas hall at 7:00pm (I’m pretty sure anyway). Make it if you can.

“orginating” the role?
Uhhhh yeah. that’s it. It’s a theatre technical term.
