BroadwayCon returns January 27-29, 2017, with an expanded slate of theatrical programming at the Javits Center. BroadwayCon, which is co-presented by Playbill, Mischief Management and Anthony Rapp, offers theatre fans a one-of-a-kind weekend of panels, performances, one-on-one star moments, seminars, autograph and photo sessions, a booming Marketplace and other activities.
Recently announced participants include Grammy Award nominee Josh Groban and the cast of the immersive, electro-pop musical Natasha, Pierre and the Great Comet of 1812, who will take part in a January 27 MainStage panel.
Great Comet star Denée Benton and the show’s director, Rachel Chavkin, appeared at the inaugural BroadwayCon last winter to give fans a taste of what was in store on Broadway this season.
Here’s a look at the never-before-seen performance and interview!
