Alumna co-produces one man musical
Katie Avebe (’02), production associate with Royal Family Productions, co-produces Without You, Anthony Rapp’s one man musical, with Menier Chocolate Factory. Rapp was an original star in RENT. Show runs in Boston through Saturday, June 23 at the Modern Theatre at Suffolk University.
“It is very exciting to be partnering with The Chocolate Factory from London on this project,” Avebe says. “I know it isn’t TV or Film, but I am hoping it is just as exciting for BU to have an alum producing in the theatre world of NYC and beyond.”
About Without You
Anthony Rapp presents his turbulant journey through two life-changing events: the early days of Rent (including the untimely passing of Jonathan Larson) and the illness and death of his own mother. Based on his New York Times best-selling memoir, Rapp, backed by a five-piece rock band, uses a mix of original music and songs by Larson and R.E.M. in a stunning one-man show about grief, hope and triumph.
