Rapp was born on 26 October 1971 in Joliet, Illinois. He attended high school at Joliet West High School in Joliet and theatre camp at the prestigious Michigan Interlochen Arts Academy. He first performed on Broadway in 1981, at the age of ten, in The Little Prince and the Aviator, a short-lived musical based on Antoine de Saint-Exupéry's novel The Little Prince. He also appeared as a child in the 1987 movie Adventures in Babysitting, which was directed by Chris Columbus. Columbus would later direct Rapp in the film version of RENT.

Rapp has gone on to appear in several movies and Broadway shows. His notable work includes the film A Beautiful Mind, and the stage and film versions of Six Degrees of Separation.

Rapp is probably best known for playing Mark in the Off-Broadway and original Broadway and London casts of Jonathan Larson's musical RENT. He reprises that role in the film version of RENT, which was released on November 23, 2005. Fans of RENT closely associate Rapp with that show, and he has given numerous television and print interviews regarding the show and its development. Some of Rapp's photographs from rehearsals of RENT have been published.

In 2000, Rapp released a solo CD, entitled Look Around.

Rapp's brother is the playwright Adam Rapp. Rapp also has a sister, Anne, a stepsister and stepbrother, Jeff.

As of 2005, Rapp's partner is actor Rodney To.

In 2006, Rapp released a memoir about his days in RENT, entitled Without You: A Memoir of Love, Loss, and the Musical Rent, published by Simon & Schuster.
Rapp is also openly gay, or "queer" as he prefers to be called. He's an advocate in show business for gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgendered rights.
