Kicking off 2021 with a bang, The Space welcomes consummate performer and Broadway superstar, Adam Pascal, for a limited, two-night engagement. Pascal’s “So Far – An Acoustic Retrospective” features an intimate evening of songs and stories chronicling the amazing career of the Broadway performer from Rent to Aida, through Something Rotten to Pretty Woman: The Musical featuring the good, the bad and the ugly sides of his personal journey navigating the world of musical theater. The star of the hit musical Rent on both Broadway and the Chris Columbus-directed film, is set to grace the stage for two nights only on Friday, Jan. 15 and Saturday, Jan. 16 at 6 p.m.
As part of the ongoing partnership between The Space and BroadwayWorld, both shows will be broadcast live on www.BroadwayWorld.com. A very limited number of tickets to enjoy Adam Pascal’s performance live and in person are available for $30 each at The Space and can be purchased at www.thespacelv.com. Please note that all patrons at The Space will be required to observe all of the COVID regulations currently in place including, but not limited to mask wearing and physical distancing.
“I’m thrilled to welcome Adam to The Space,” says Mark Shunock, founder of The Space. “This has been a long time coming and I’m so excited 2021 starts with these two incredible shows. We’re looking forward to continuing to help artists take the stage during this trying time, and look forward to welcoming guests back to The Space safely.”
New York native Adam Pascal started singing in rock bands when he was 12, playing the local New York club scene for many years, and has been performing as a solo artist, in bands, in movies and on the Broadway stage ever since.
In 1996, Pascal auditioned for the original Broadway production of Rent. He landed the role of Roger Davis and was subsequently nominated for a 1996 Tony Award (Leading Actor in a Musical), and won Drama League and Obie awards for his performance. The show went on to become a worldwide success and one of the longest-running shows in Broadway history. The following year, he reprised the role, the first of several times he would do so, for the musical’s West End premiere.
Pascal’s career expanded to the big screen in the 1998 independent film SLC Punk! Two years later, in 2000, he was cast as Radames in Elton John and Tim Rice’s new Broadway musical Aida, for which he received a Drama League Award. That same year, his debut solo album, Model Prisoner, was released and he co-produced the hit Off-Broadway play Fully Committed with his former Rent cast mate Jesse L. Martin. The show garnered numerous awards and played to sold-out houses in New York City, Chicago, San Francisco and London.
Pascal returned to Broadway in 2003 to play the final Emcee in the Sam Mendes/Rob Marshall production of Cabaret at Studio 54, as part of the closing cast. Also during that time, he starred alongside Jack Black as Theo, the lead singer of “No Vacancy,” in School of Rock (2003). Pascal’s second CD, Civilian, was released in November 2004.
He reprised the role of Roger in the movie version of Rent (2005) and again, for the last time, in the 2009 production Rent the Broadway Tour, alongside Anthony Rapp. The tour traveled all over the U.S., Japan and South Korea.
In 2008, Pascal played the role of Freddie Trumper in the Tim Rice/Abba musical Chess, alongside Josh Groban and Idina Menzel for two sold-out performances at the Royal Albert Hall in London. His other Broadway roles include Chad in Disaster (2010/11), Shakespeare in Something Rotten (2018) and, most recently, Edward Lewis in Pretty Woman: The Musical (2019).
