"Rent" stars Adam Pascal and Anthony Rapp are to make a joint concert appearance Saturday night at the North Shore Center for the Performing Arts in Skokie.
They're each doing solo sets, replete with new arrangements of "Rent" numbers, and then singing together. Aside from the Jonathan Larson songs, the concert also features other fare, including original material.
Two days after the concert, Pascal joins the Broadway cast of "Memphis" in the lead role of Huey Calhoun.
Rapp should know his way around the theater - he appeared as Charlie Brown in the Broadway revival of "You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown," which had its out-of-town tryout at this very venue in 1999.
