US/Canada   Fans React! Your Favorite Stars, Events and Surprises from the Inaugural BroadwayCon
 
After a three-day extravaganza of all things theatre, we asked you (the fans) to play the critic. Here are you favorite things and one-word reviews from the historic occasion.

Lisa Spodak 
Highlights: The Rent reunion, the Hamilton panel and "Next Stop, Broadway!" 
I liked just watching all the teenagers getting excited…watching them really get into it. I found it interesting how so many of the speakers on all the panels have said they'd wished this had been around when they were a kid. Even they were geeking out about it happening, and I just think that's really cool.
The weekend in one word: Joyous 

Myra Wong 
Highlights: The Rent reunion and the Opening Ceremony. I wasn't expecting how wonderful it would be.
Most starstruck by: Jonathan Groff and Joshua Safran
The weekend in one word: Geeking-Out
