Original ‘Rent’ star Anthony Rapp comes to Bucks County Playhouse

The artist is appearing for one night on Sept. 21

Broadway’s original Mark in Rent, Anthony Rapp, will present his solo show at Bucks County Playhouse on Saturday, Sept. 21 at 8 p.m. Rapp’s appearance is part of the Playhouse’s Visiting Artists Series.

In concert, Rapp visits some of his Rent hits as well as original material and songs that he connects with, including his Rent audition song. He has performed his music in clubs and colleges throughout the country.

Currently starring in CBS’ All Access hit series Star Trek, Discovery, Rapp has been acting and singing professionally since he was 9 years old. With an extensive list of achievements, Rapp is best known for originating the role of Mark Cohen in Jonathan Larson’s Tony Award-winning rock opera Rent, for which he shared an OBIE Award with the rest of the cast.

He reprised his role in Chris Columbus’ film version opposite other members of the original cast. Rapp recently visited the role once more with original cast member Adam Pascal in the Rent Tour. Pascal presented his solo show at Bucks County Playhouse in July.

Tickets to Rapp’s show are $45. They are available at the box office, 70 S. Main St., New Hope, online at BucksCountyPlayhouse.org or by calling 215-862-2121.
