There's no day but today to get tickets to Without You, the new one-man musical by Anthony Rapp that celebrates an iconic modern musical. Get Anthony Rapp's Without You tickets on New York Theatre Guide. Without You is a musical, based on Rapp's New York Times bestselling memoir, about the show that changed his life. He shares how at 22, he was working at Starbucks and low on money — and then came an audition for a new show called Rent. Rapp didn't know it yet, but Jonathan Larson's rock musical about bohemian New Yorkers living through the AIDS crisis would soon revolutionize the modern musical and cement Larson in theatre history. But on the day of Rent's first-ever performance off Broadway at New York Theatre Workshop, Larson died. With Rent songs, original music, and personal anecdotes, Rapp pays tribute to Larson in Without You and the love, loss, and life-changing experiences being a part of Rent brought him. Rapp originated the lead role of filmmaker Mark Cohen off Broadway in 1996, on Broadway later that year, and in London in 1998. His other Broadway credits include Six Degrees of Separation, You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown, and If/Then, which also featured his Rent co-star Idina Menzel. Rapp published Without You in 2006 and first turned the book into a stage show in 2012. He has performed that version in London, Edinburgh, Toronto, Boston, and more, but Without You off Broadway is its first production in New York. Though Without You is called a one-man show, Rapp is accompanied on stage by a five-piece band as he performs songs like "La Vie Boheme," a flagship Rent song, and "Losing My Religion" by R.E.M., which he used to audition for Rent back in the '90s. Get tickets to Anthony Rapp's Without You in New York now.

Brooklyn-based comedian Colin Quinn is back with his latest Off-Broadway comedy special, Colin Quinn: Small Talk, running for a limited engagement in winter 2023. Get Colin Quinn: Small Talk tickets now. Quinn is most widely known for political humor, but his Small Talk comedy show has a different focus: the art of charisma. Drawing on a lifetime of chatting with friends, family, counter service workers, and strangers, Quinn shares tips on how to be personable and fun to talk to. Quinn has said of Small Talk, “I'm doing this show because I’m fascinated with how personality in general (and individuals in particular) have fed into society. (Fascinated might be a strong word)." Quinn's most recent Off-Broadway show, 2021's The Last Best Hope, combined a similar premise (Quinn's charisma) with his trademark political comedy, focusing on why his is a voice worth listening to in today's social-media saturated age where everyone has a platform. Quinn has indeed built a sizable social media platform, with more than 500,000 followers on Twitter alone, but he's a stalwart of the in-person NYC comedy scene too. Small Talk in New York follows other Off-Broadway shows like Colin Quinn: Unconstitutional, Colin Quinn: The New York Story (directed by Jerry Seinfeld), and Red State Blue State, all of which have become Netflix specials. Quinn has also performed two specials on Broadway: Colin Quinn: An Irish Wake and Colin Quinn: Long Story Short. Directing Small Talk off Broadway is James Fauvell, who also helmed the Off-Broadway premiere of Red State Blue State. Get Colin Quinn: Small Talk tickets on New York Theatre Guide.
