While stage door autograph sessions are on hold, fans can still get a chance to meet the stars face-to-face—albeit virtually. Beginning May 30, several stage favorites will take part in Broadway Fantasy Camp’s new Broadway Banter: Safe-At-Home series, including Tony winner Santino Fontana, Tony nominees Lilli Cooper, Jenn Colella, and Laura Osnes, Olivier winner Lesli Margherita, Telly Leung, and Corey Cott.
The intimate series, which used to be held at the theatre district staple Sardi's, includes an interview followed by an interactive experience for fans. To make the experience safer for all involved in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, Broadway Banter will now be held on Zoom.
"It's not just a Q&A session," said Colella. "I want to hear my fans and I want us to create a dialogue together to lift one another up in this very strange time. The opportunity to 'hang out' with my fans and for them to get to know one another makes my heart soar."
