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.

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.

Poulenc’s devastating tragedy returns, with soprano Ailyn Pérez as the young woman at the center of the harrowing, quasi-historical tale of an order of Carmelite nuns martyred in Paris during the French Revolution’s Reign of Terror. The remarkable cast also features soprano Sabine Devieilhe in her Met debut as Blanche’s fellow novice Constance, soprano Eva-Maria Westbroek as the unshakeable Madame Lidoine, mezzo-soprano Jamie Barton as Mère Marie, and mezzo-soprano Alice Coote in her role debut as Madame de Croissy. Maestro Bertrand de Billy conducts John Dexter’s striking and timeless staging. World premiere: Teatro alla Scala, Milan, 1957. One of the most successful operas of the later decades of the 20th century, Dialogues des Carmélites is a rare case of a modern work that is equally esteemed by audiences and experts. The opera focuses on a young member of an order of Carmelite nuns, the aristocratic Blanche de la Force, who must overcome a pathological timidity in order to answer her life’s calling. The score reflects key aspects of its composer’s personality: Francis Poulenc was an urbane Parisian with a profound mystical dimension, and the opera addresses both the characters’ internal lives and their external realities.

Donizetti’s heartwarming comedy stars some of today’s most celebrated bel canto singers as the spunky landowner and the hapless peasant in search of love. Radiant sopranos Golda Schultz and Aleksandra Kurzak alternate as Adina, trading barbs and embraces with tenors Javier Camarena and Xabier Anduaga, in his Met debut, as Nemorino. Italian maestro Michele Gamba also makes his company debut conducting Bartlett Sher’s madcap staging, which features baritones Davide Luciano and Joshua Hopkins as the swaggering Sgt. Belcore and baritone Ambrogio Maestri and bass-baritone Alex Esposito as the lovable huckster Dr. Dulcamara. World premiere: Teatro Cannobiana, Milan, 1832. L’Elisir d’Amore has been among the most consistently popular operatic comedies for almost two centuries. The story deftly combines comic archetypes with a degree of genuine character development rare in works of this type. Its ending is as much a foregone conclusion as it would be in a romantic comedy film today—the joy is in the journey, and Donizetti created one of his most instantly appealing scores for this ride.

The mighty walls and towering monuments of ancient Egypt once again fill the Met stage, as Verdi's great spectacle returns.

Baritones George Gagnidze, Quinn Kelsey, and Luca Salsi portray Aida's father, Amonasro, and bass-baritone Christian Van Horn is the iron-fisted priest Ramfis. Maestro Paolo Carignani conducts.World premiere: Opera House, Cairo, 1871. This grandest of grand operas features an epic backdrop for what is in essence an intimate love story. Set in ancient Egypt and packed with magnificent choruses, complex ensembles, and elaborate ballets, Aida never loses sight of its three protagonists. Few operas have matched Aida in its exploration of the conflict of private emotion and public duty, and perhaps no other has remained to the present day so unanimously appreciated by audiences and critics alike.
