Everything You Need To Know About BroadwayCon 2017

From Jan. 27 to Jan. 29, the Javits Center in New York City will transform into a hub for all things Broadway. The Big Apple might already be known for its vast theatre scene, but an annual event dedicated to celebrating the Broadway community draws in fans from all over the nation. For any true Tony Awards fanatic, BroadwayCon is a must. It hosts spectacular stars, panels, workshops, vendors and a chance to mingle with others who are just as nerdy about musical theatre as you are!

If you’re looking for some reasons to tip the scale in favor of BroadwayCon, read on.

It’s Chock-Full of Amazing Events

January’s convention offers something for every type of theatre nerd. Its host of top-notch workshops span from beginner tap to advanced hip-hop. Folks who prefer to get involved behind-the-scenes will dig Producing 101, Sound Design on Broadway and a Stage Manager Meetup. There’s even an “I Just Love Theatre!!” Meetup and a Chita Rivera Q&A (personally, we can’t say no to either of those). In addition to educational sessions, there are plenty of panels from various industry experts. Click here for full schedule details.
