In 1994 Anthony Rapp was working at a Manhattan Starbucks and about to audition for a new rock opera by a young guy named Jonathan Larson. This is where Without You begins. In his new one-man show, Anthony shares his audition for Rent, getting cast, rehearsals, and his view from the stage during the tribute performance on the night after Jonathan's tragic death. Without You also details Anthony's achingly beautiful relationship with his mother during this turbulent time. Featuring Anthony's own lyrics and melodies, stories adapted from his memoir, and the landmark songs of Rent, Without You is a valentine to the groundbreaking musical and celebrates all of our seasons of love.
Without You is adapted from Anthony Rapp's book Without You: a Memoir of Love, Loss, and the Musical Rent, published by Simon & Schuster.
