A slate of original programming has just been announced for BroadwayCon, which returns January 27–29, 2017, at the Javits Center. Co-presented by Playbill, Mischief Management, and Anthony Rapp, the one-of-a-kind weekend includes panels, performances, one-on-one star moments, seminars, autograph and photo sessions, a booming Marketplace, and other activities.
Here’s a look at the first batch of original programming:
BroadwayCon Star To Be: A fan-based talent show with Broadway judges, in which our fans perform and compete for prizes.
“I’m Just a Broadway Baby”: Video clips of Broadway stars performing when they were kids, and recreating the performance live!
The BroadwayCon Feud: Hosted by Jenn Colella, our version of Family Feud starring both fans and Broadway stars.
CosPlay Fashion Show with Celebrity Judges: Don’t forget to pack your best Broadway-inspired costume for this one-of-a-kind fashion show!
The BroadwayCon Jukebox: The audience gets one minute to vote for one of four selected songs on the official BroadwayCon app, and after voting ends, our Broadway singers take center stage to sing the winning song with our live band!
Party Line! Who will we call this year? Join us as we call and FaceTime some of our favorite stars and share the conversation with you! Last year’s party line included such stars as Betty Buckley, Patti LuPone, Joel Grey, Audra McDonald, Laura Benanti, Shanice Williams, Darren Criss, and Jeremy Jordan.
