Just weeks after arriving in NYC in 2008, Tony found himself packing his bags again to head off on tour around the US with RENT (Angel Tour).  After 6 months on tour he returned to New York City and made his Broadway debut--joining the cast of RENT as a swing and understudy for lead roles Mark and Roger.  Tony remained with the show on Broadway for 8 months, finishing his run on September 26, 1999.
