EmilyWhat part of New England are you from:
CTWhy you like RENT:
because it has a universal message that everyone can connect to...also I LOOOOVE the music : DFavorite RENT character:
Uhm can I say the pit orchestra that's really a rock band? Because for me that's the coolest thing in the world...but a real character would have to be RogerFavorite RENT cast member:
Adam Pascal and Anthony RappFavorite RENT song/lyric:
Lyric: "Let's go eat, I'll just get fat. It's the one vice left when you're dead meat." so deep...lol
Song: wow I really can't choose...What You Own, Glory, Santa Fe, La Vie Boheme, Rent...the list goes onEver seen RENT live? How many times?
yes I saw the national tour once, and I'm in the process of getting Broadway tickets!!Ever see the movie? How many times?
Umm I've lost track...I'd say somewhere around 10. I love all of the bonus features...especially the commentary! hence my icon...lol (if you have no idea what I'm talking about just ask)Any other info?
umm I met Adam Pascal at one of his concerts which was awesome! I got his autograph and told him how I thought he was amazing, and probably mumbled a lot of other stuff that I don't remember because I was in famous person blabber-mode : P which leads me to my next thing...
Ok, so as you can probably tell I am a huge Adam fan. I feel weird asking a favor of you guys in my first post, but I need help. I found out that he's going on tour again, and since his last show was so good I was ecstatic. He's doing two different shows...there's an acoustic show with his piano player Larry Edoff featuring songs from his solo CDs, and then he's doing a "Vegas" show with a full band featuring all Broadway songs!! (mostly Rent, Aida, and Cabaret because he was in them, but he'll probably do a few more) Anyway, it sounds awesome! Adam's agency (Off Broadway Booking) posted on the Adam LJ community saying that we could contact our local theatres and get them to book Adam...so of course I immeadiately e-mailed about 4 theatres. That was about a month ago, and only one has gotten back to me (with a negative response...but hey at least they got back to me) Anyway, the point I'm trying to make is that a theatre isn't going to book an act if only one person requests it...I was wondering if anyone in the CT area was willing to help me out and e-mail some of the theatres as well that way they think that there's a high interest. I would be eternally grateful!! Here are the addresses:
Toad's Place (New Haven): firstname.lastname@example.org
Webster Theatre (Hartford): email@example.com
I also e-mail the Hard Rock Cafe at Foxwoods but they said no, and I just e-mailed the Shubert tonight so I'll give you that contact info in a few days if I don't hear back from them. I figured that would be a good place for the Vegas show!! : D
In the email maybe just explain how Adam got his start in Rent and how he has two solo rock CDs and maybe list his other credits if you know them...I also mentioned the success of his last tour so they know that people will want to come.
Again, thank you so much for your help! You can visit www.offbroadwaybooking.com
if you want to find out more about his tour. There's a really good promotional video of him singing Glory while playing acoustic. And if you don't live in CT but still want to book a show, e-mail Tracie@offbroadwaybooking.com
for ideas and more information.
