stage ever since. In 1995, his band, Mute, recorded a self-titled album that was released in Japan by Zero Corporation. In 1996, Adam tried out for the then unknown, off-Broadway production of Rent. He landed the role of Roger Davis. Adam was nominated for a 1996 Tony Award as Best Actor (Musical), and won a Drama League and Obie award for his performance as Roger. The Show went on to become a worldwide success and one of the longest running shows in Broadway history. In 1997 He reprised the role of Roger (the first of several times he would do so) for the West End Premiere of Rent.
In 1998, Adam's career expanded to the big screen in the independent film SLC Punk! In 2000, Adam was cast as Radames in Elton John and Tim Rice's new Broadway musical Aida, for which he received a Drama League award. He would stay with the production for over 3 years. In May of 2000, his debut solo album, Model Prisoner, was released on Sh-K-Boom Records.

In October 2003, Adam once again visited the Broadway stage, this time, asked to be the final Emcee in the Sam Mendes/Rob Marshall production of Cabaret at Studio 54, as part of the closing cast. Also during that time Adam was cast along side Jack Black, as Theo, the lead singer of "No Vacancy" in 2003's School of Rock. Finally in 2004, Adam's second CD, Civilian, was released in November, again on Sh-k-boom records.
In 2005, Adam reprised the role of Roger in the movie version of Rent and helped bring a new generation of fans to the Broadway show and its music. Adam's journey with Rent finally came to conclusion when in 2009, he reprised the role one last time along side Anthony Rapp, in "Rent The Broadway Tour", which traveled all over the U.S. as well as Japan and South Korea.
In 2008, Adam played the role of Freddie Trumper in the Tim Rice/Abba Musical Chess, alongside Josh Groban, and Idina Menzel for two sold out performances at The Royal Albert Hall, in London. The DVD is currently on sale worldwide.
