"RENT" Star to Perform at IWU
April 3, 2006
BLOOMINGTON, Ill. - Illinois Wesleyan Student Senate will sponsor a vocal performance
by "RENT" actor/singer Adam Pascal on Tuesday, April 11 at 8 p.m. at the Hansen Student
Center (300 E. Beecher St., Bloomington).
The event is free and open to the public though tickets must be obtained ahead of
time. Doors open for IWU students at 6:30 p.m. and at 7 p.m. for the public.
The performance will be part of a tour of northeast and mid-west college campuses.
Pascal's show will be contemporary and unique, combining his love of rock 'n' roll
with his passion for musicals. He will perform original songs from his albums "Model
Prisoner" and "Citizen" as well as his own renditions of songs from musicals including
"RENT" and "Cabaret."
Pascal received nominations as Best Leading Actor in a Musical and Outstanding New
Talent for his role as Roger in the original Broadway version and the more recent
movie version of "RENT," a Pulitzer and Tony Award-winning musical about Bohemians
in the East Village of New York City struggling with life, love and AIDS, and the
impacts those issues have on America. He has starred in the musical "Aida," as the
Emcee in "Cabaret," and played opposite Jack Black in "School of Rock." Pascal also
co-produced the Off-Broadway play "Fully Committed."
