Broadway and film star Anthony Rapp has a starring role in Broadway’s If/Then, but he’s also well known for his roles in Dazed and Confused, A Beautiful Mind, and Rent. The nonprofit AT&T Performing Arts Center hosted Rapp for a one-night-only appearance at the Alamo Drafthouse in Richardson as a way to connect fans to the actors they love.
After a special screening of Rent, Rapp took part in an intimate Q&A session moderated by the Dallas Observer’s Lauren Smart and the Center’s Jessica Roberts. Fans also were able to win prizes from the AT&T Performing Arts Center & Dallas Observer. For theatre kids and movie lovers, there aren’t many chances like this to see this giant of the biz.
Based on the overwhelming success of the event, the Center hopes to create more opportunities just like this one, where we can engage more in the community through the performing arts. As a nonprofit, it’s our hope that everyone in the community finds a way to connect with our growing and dynamic offerings.
