Debbie Kurup is among actors who will perform at the upcoming Jonathan Larson tribute concert.

Kurup, who starred in Larson’s musical Rent in its original West End run, will be joined by Krysten Cummings and Damien Flood – both also alumni of the London production.

All three actors will perform songs written by Larson, in addition to speaking about their memories of starring in Rent.

Best known for writing the 80s-set rock musical, Larson died aged 35 on the same day as the show’s first preview in 1996.

He will be remembered at the one-off Seasons of Larson concert, which will be held at the Lyric Theatre on January 25.

Further casting will be announced in January.
