More than 15,000 fans will be able to attend BroadwayCon at New York City’s Javits Center this winter, which includes a new main stage twice the size of last year’s inaugural event in midtown Manhattan.
BroadwayCon, the theatrical gathering that brings fans together alongside Broadway’s biggest talents, returns January 27-29, 2017, with an expanded slate of programming.
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.
After a successful inaugural event at the midtown Hilton, BroadwayCon is increasing its theatrical footprint, which will allow more attendees to experience the unique event.
The BroadwayCon MainStage will seat over 5,000 guests (more than three Majestic Theatres), while the second stage will now seat more than 2,500 (comparable to last year’s Main Stage).
BroadwayCon 2017 will also offer six programming rooms, and a BroadwayCon museum that will double in size. Attendees will also enjoy a larger BroadwayCon Marketplace that will welcome even more Broadway-affiliated organizations, book and play sellers, independent crafters and exhibitors, Broadway-inspired charities, and official BroadwayCon merchandise.
Dozens of Broadway stars—with many more to come—have already been announced. Among them are Josh Groban and the cast of Natasha, Pierre and the Great Comet of 1812, who will appear in a special MainStage panel at BroadwayCon.
