Anthony Rapp to Join Robi Hager at Joe's Pub
Alina Gutiérrez, Robert Intile, Jr and Ashley Mas announce that Anthony Rapp (Rent) will make a guest appearance during Robi Hager's (Spring Awakening, Bye Bye Birdie) Joe's Pub concert Tuesday, January 18, 2011 at 9:30PM.
Anthony Rapp is best known for originating the role of Mark Cohen in Jonathan Larson's Tony Award- and Pulitzer Prize-winning musical, Rent. He reprised his role in Chris Columbus's film of the award-winning musical. His most recent success involved a sold-out run in the 2010 New York Musical Theater Festival of his original musical Without You, based on his best-selling memoir of the same name.
The previously announced concert will mark Hager's solo debut. Hager will perform original arrangements of classic songs by Rufus Wainwright, The Eagles, Simon & Garfunkel, Billy Joel and more. Hager will play alongside a five-piece band and will be joined on stage by his father, John Hager, on the trombone, and his siblings John Hager, Jr. and Daniele Hager. Robert Felstein (Musical Director of The Fantasticks) will provide musical direction.
Hager appeared in the Tony Award-winning musical Spring Awakening. He was also seen in last year's Broadway revival of Bye Bye Birdie (u/s Conrad Birdie), as well as the national tour of Spring Awakening. He can be heard on the Grammy-winning original cast recording of Spring Awakening.
