Many of Jackbox's games feature multiplayer opportunities through mobile web links, meaning Broadway Jackbox is likely to include opportunities for audience participation as viewers tune in.

Feldman became Broadway's youngest-ever Evan Hansen when he joined the show at 16 years old in January 2019. Before making his Broadway debut, Feldman was the male winner of the 2018 Jimmy Awards, which recognizes the best in American High School musical theatre performers.

Broadway Jackbox is one of many efforts to create Broadway-related content online in the wake of theatre cancellations nationwide due to COVID-19, including Telly Leung's online concert series and Playbill's own Smash watch-along.
