In 1996, Adam tried out for the then unknown, off-Broadway production of Rent. He landed the role of Roger Davis. Adam was nominated for a 1996 Tony Award® as Best Actor (Musical), and won a Drama League and Obie Award for his performance as Roger. The show went on to become a worldwide success and one of the longest running in Broadway history.

Two years later, Adam’s career expanded to the big screen in the independent film ‘SLC Punk!’ He would later go on to do various film and TV projects. Returning to Broadway in 2000, Adam was cast as Radames in Elton John and Tim Rice’s new Broadway musical Aida, for which he received a Drama League award. In May of that same year, his debut solo album, “Model Prisoner,” was released.  Also in 2000, Adam co-produced the hit off-Broadway play Fully Committed with fellow former Rent cast  member, Jesse L. Martin. The show went on to garner many awards and played to sold-out houses in New York City, Chicago, San Francisco and London.

In October 2003, Adam once again visited the Broadway stage, this time, he was asked to be the final Emcee in the Sam Mendes/Rob Marshall production of Cabaret at Studio 54, as part of the closing cast. Also during that time, Adam starred along side Jack Black, as Theo, the lead singer of “No Vacancy” in 2003’s “School of Rock.” Adam released his second CD, “Civilian,” was released in November 2004, again on Sh-k-boom records.

Adam reprised the role of Roger in the film adaptation of Rent in 2005. His journey with Rent finally came to conclusion when in 2009, Adam reprised the role one last time along side Anthony Rapp, in “Rent The Broadway Tour” which traveled all over the U.S., including to the Fox Cities Performing Arts Center, as well as Japan and South Korea.

In 2008, Adam played the role of Freddie Trumper in the Tim Rice/Abba musical Chess, alongside Josh Groban and Idina Menzel for two sold-out performances at The Royal Albert Hall in London. The DVD is currently on sale worldwide.
