TRIVIA

• The casting director for the national tour of RENT held a mock audition at Aaron’s college in Ithaca. That “mock” audition ended up landing him a gig in the tour. Two months later, Aaron and his father drove to New York for a callback; the day he drove back, he received an offer to tour the country as part of the RENT cast.

• Aaron’s roll was Steve in the national tour; however, he understudied Roger Davis. Little did he know, he’d be portraying Roger in the major production of RENT at the Hollywood Bowl just five years later.
