Playbill, one of BroadwayCon’s co-presenters, will have an experiential booth in the BroadwayCon Marketplace this year. BroadwayCon runs January 27-29 at the Jacob Javits Center, and various ticket levels are available. CLICK HERE TO GET BROADWAYCON TICKETS.
The Playbill Booth will be open 9 AM to 6 PM Friday through Sunday.
The Pop-Up Playbill Store will carry the latest must-have show merchandise (including Hamilton), Disney on Broadway souvenirs, and Playbill exclusive items including Playbill pajamas, Opening Night Playbills, mugs, and more.
At various points in the day, the booth will host Musical Sing-A-Long Time, a piano-bar style sing-a-long party with live piano accompaniment. Music Theatre International, Samuel French, and Tams-Witmark Music Library sponsor the sing-a-long, and fans can choose from a vast catalogue of their scores for the chance to belt out a show tune with Playbill music director Logan Culwell-Block on the keys.

Co-presented by Playbill, Mischief Management, and Anthony Rapp, BroadwayCon has expanded from last year’s inaugural convention at the Midtwon Hilton to New York City’s Jacob Javits Center January 27-29. Programming begins between 9 AM and 10 AM each day, and continues up until 11 PM on Friday and Saturday. It all culminates Sunday at 6 PM with the BroadwayCon Closing Ceremony.
In addition to a larger MainStage, this year’s event offers six programming rooms, and a BroadwayCon museum that has doubled 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.
