Anthony Rapp opens in his brother's play

Anthony Rapp opens in his brother's play

Out Rent star Anthony Rapp opened in a one-character drama written by his playwright brother, Adam Rapp, this week at the Roda Theatre in Berkeley, Calif. Staged by the Berkeley Repertory Theatre company, the work, Nocturne, is a monologue by a young man (called simply The Son) recounting a tragic death in his family years earlier. In a review Thursday in The [San Jose] Mercury News, critic Mark de la Vina wrote, "Anthony Rapp proves he's more than just a musical theater veteran with Broadway credits (You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown). He plays The Son with a world-weary gait, as a virginal husk of a man [and] is especially adept at playing two characters in conversation." De la Vina also noted the relevance of the themes of sudden loss and grief to the post-September 11 world, calling the play "a bold, elegant, and even funny exploration of how a single moment has the power both to connect us and change our lives." Nocturne runs through November 11.
