‘Rent’ stars extend stay

Original cast members add four weeks

Original stars Adam Pascal and Anthony Rapp are sticking around for another month’s “Rent,” extending their stint in the Broadway tuner by four weeks.

That’s good news for the 11-year-old musical’s box office. Weekly sales shot up by more than $250,000 (to $632,966) and audiences swelled to 98% of capacity in Pascal and Rapp’s first frame back, the week ending Aug. 5.

Sales have remained high, with last week’s receipts tallying $611,973.

Producers are clearly hoping the two thesps help boost sales during the traditionally slow month of September. Pascal and Rapp now star in “Rent” through Oct. 7.
