Casting announced for Paramount Theatre's Rent
Here's who will live "La Vie Boheme" in Aurora
Thu Feb 6 2014
The principal young romantics in the late Jonathan Larson's Lower East Side La Boheme are to include Andrew M. Mueller as Mark, Adaeze' Kelley as Mimi, Adam Michaels as Roger, Evan Tyrone Martin as Tom Collins, Andrea Prestinario as Maureen, Kelvin Roston Jr. as Benny, Meghan Murphy as Joanne and Sawyer Smith as Angel. (A generation of Rentheads will tell you the latter two roles have traditionally been cast as people of color, but color-blind casting goes in all directions I guess?)
Kasey Alfonso, Aaron Conklin, Lillie Cummings, Josh A. Dawson, Erika Diehl, Raven Monique Dockery, Joyee Lin, Gannon O'Brien, Michael Potsic, Neil Stratman and Adrienne Walker round out the ensemble. Rent runs March 12–April 6 at the Paramount Theatre.
