On Twitter, Anthony Rapp had this to say about reviews on his new show WITHOUT YOU @albinokid
I honestly didn't expect such an amazing response to Without You here; I thought UK folks might not like emotional shows. Thx all 4 yr msgs.
Ouch. A UK blogger: "Rapp has the dazed look of a man who has just been punched in the side of the head and is still seeing stars."
I was expecting a less warm response to Without You over here. We've gotten a couple lukewarm reviews but most have been great.
To be fair, a Boston critic once called me a disaster, so it's not just the Brits who can be especially harsh.
Case in point: for the same performance I was called a disaster by one critic and perfect by another. To each his (or her) own...
I've always said that if you're allergic to RENT (& there are folks who are) then a part of you is a little dead inside.
Following its European Premiere at the 2012 Edinburgh Fringe Without You, written and performed by Rent star Anthony Rapp, now transfers to the Menier Chocolate Factory, London, where it plays through 15th September 2012.
Without You begins in 1994 with Anthony Rapp working at a Starbucks and about to audition for Rent, the new musical by a young Jonathan Larson. An inspiring story about friends and artists struggling in New York's Lower East Side, it was based loosely on Puccini's La Bohème. Anthony got the part, but Jonathan died suddenly the night before Rent's off-Broadway premiere.
