BroadwayCon, the one-of-a-kind event that brings you through the stage door to be part of the excitement that happens onstage and behind-the-scenes, is only three months away.
From January 27–29, 2017, join some of Broadway’s biggest fans, performers, and creators from classic and current shows as we gather at the Javits Convention Center to perform, discuss, debate, and celebrate theatre.
You’ve seen shows, and been to festivals, benefits, and concerts. BroadwayCon is all of that and more. It’s a chance to get the complete Broadway fan experience, from every angle, all packed into an epic three-day weekend of panels, performances, interviews, workshops, sing-alongs, and more.
Co-presented by Playbill, Mischief Management and Anthony Rapp, BroadwayCon features previews from upcoming Broadway shows, conversations with the casts and creatives of iconic shows, and discussions featuring designers, producers, and industry insiders. Fans can also expect original musical moments, autograph sessions, nighttime concerts, theatrical game shows, as well as an expanded museum, and marketplace.
There’s something for everyone at BroadwayCon, and you can choose from various ticket packages—each with their own special benefits—to customize your experience. Get tickets now.
