Written by

The first ever convention for Broadway superfans, BroadwayCon, is coming to New York January 22–24, along with some of your favorite stars from the Great White Way. The convention's cocreator, Anthony Rapp, played Mark Cohen in the original production of Rent, and he's bringing some of his castmates with him to celebrate the musical's 20th anniversary.

On January 22 at 7:30pm, Rapp, Tony Award nominees Adam Pascal and Daphne Rubin-Vega, and Fredi Walker, Rodney Hicks, choreographer Marlies Yearby, casting director Bernard Telsey and more will gather to discuss the beloved musical that changed the face of theater. There will also be a live band, surprise guests and even an original song. Idina Menzel isn't on the bill, but miracles do happen.

If Rent doesn't hold a special place in your heart, BroadwayCon has plenty more to offer, like a Hamilton panel complete with Lin-Manual Miranda and Jonathan Groff, meetups for fans of Andrew Lloyd Webber and Sondheim, singalongs to your favorite classic shows and plenty of meet-and-greets with actors. Check out the insane schedule here, and you can buy day passes for $95, or a weekend pass for $250. Seasons of love!
