On November 14, Season 4 of The Tyler Mount Vlog premiered online. A YouTube personality covering all things theatre, Tyler Mount welcomes members of the Broadway community to his couch every Monday and offers hilarious fangirl features—like his “Three Minute Hamilton”—every Thursday.
BroadwayCon founder and original Rent star Anthony Rapp joined Mount for the season premiere. The two talked about the inaugural BroadwayCon in 2016 and what to expect from the upcoming convention at the Javits Center January 27-29, 2017. “We will always have an original performance at the top, never-before-seen stuff with really cool people,” said Rapp, referring to the original mini-musical written for the convention’s opening.
HIGHLIGHTS FROM BROADWAYCON 2016:
“The best moment of my life was opening night of Rent on Broadway; my mom, who was battling cancer, was in the audience that night and that was the one and only time she got to see it,” said Rapp.
In his newest segment, FanGirl of the Week, Mount asks Rapp questions from one of his fans. Turns out, Rapp doesn’t eat ice cream, his favorite Disney movie is Zootopia, and his go-to karaoke song is REM or Coldplay.
But the highlight of the episode is clearly when Rapp and Mount sing “La Vie Boheme,” before playing No Hands Lip Sync Battle, mouthing the words to Rent co-star Idina Menzel’s rendition of “Defying Gravity” and Chicago’s “All That Jazz.”
