We can finally tell you what we have in store for 2019! The first three years of BroadwayCon have featured incredible performances, new friendships, and lots of fun. And now we’re moving the fun back into the theatre district.
BroadwayCon is at its best when it’s in the center of it all, so we are bringing it back inland and are thrilled to announce that BroadwayCon 2019 will return to where we started: the Hilton Midtown, with the addition of the beautiful, historic Ziegfeld Ballroom next door. Mark your calendars! BroadwayCon 2019 will take place January 11–13.
It’s been a great two years at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center but we could not be more excited to bring BroadwayCon back to the heart of the city that is integral to the Broadway community we know and love. Snag tickets to a show during the weekend? Now you’ll be able to squeeze in one last panel or singalong before the curtain rises. Tired of the same food court offerings? We are too! At the Hilton Midtown, you’ll be just minutes away from a huge variety of restaurants serving nearly every cuisine, and they deliver!
If you stay with us at the Hilton Midtown (and we recommend that you do; we will have a special convention rate available very shortly!), you’ll be just steps away from BroadwayCon every morning. Instead of packing your bag with everything you might need for the day and waiting for the shuttle just to get to BroadwayCon, all you’ll need is your badge! If your phone dies or you forget to grab a Playbill for your autograph session that day, your room will be just an elevator ride away. And if there’s a blizzard? Well, you know the drill!
Each year, BroadwayCon has grown bigger and better, and BroadwayCon 2019 is no exception. We’ll have more programming and more space at the Hilton than ever before, and we’ll be bringing you regular updates about all the fun we’ve got planned this time around. Make sure to follow @BwayCon across social media and sign up to receive our emails!
We can’t wait to celebrate another BroadwayCon with you!
Your BroadwayCon Team
We are so excited to be headed back to the Jacob K. Javits Center from January 26–28, 2018 for another amazing weekend celebrating Broadway, theatre, and the inspiring power of live performance. Here is a quick rundown of the changes coming for BroadwayCon attendees in 2018.
(Don’t forget: Tickets for BroadwayCon 2018 go on sale April 20, beginning at 1 p.m. Eastern.)
We’ve already announced the first 16 special guests for BroadwayCon 2018 (including Donna Murphy, Kelli O’Hara, Joe Mantello, and Andrew Chappelle) with many more coming soon! See the full list of announced guests here.
A general ticket to BroadwayCon now costs only $195, and you can get a one-day experience for only $65! We also have two levels of premium ticket types with a variety of extra perks and benefits! Learn more about BroadwayCon ticket types.
New this year, the Platinum Pass is our very-limited VIP experience and grants you guaranteed, reserved premium seating for all program rooms, guaranteed fast-track access to all autographs and photographs, an exclusive meet-and-greet with BroadwayCon guests, and many more amazing perks. Only 30 Platinum Passes are available so do not wait to get yours!
BroadwayCon excited to offer high school, college, and postgraduate students with a valid student ID a 10% discount on General Passes and Day Passes with promotional code STUDENTIX. Please note that you will be required to enter your school affiliation and student ID number during checkout and must bring your student ID with you to check-in for the event. BroadwayCon staff may verify the student information with your school’s administration at any time before the event. Any tickets purchased with false information will be canceled immediately without refund.
As a thank you for their continued support, we are happy to offer past attendees of BroadwayCon 2016 and 2017 early access to tickets! Past attendees will receive an email at 1 p.m. on Wednesday, April 19th with instructions on how to get presale tickets to BroadwayCon 2018!
Please note that we can only offer a pre-sale to those attendees who purchased tickets directly through BroadwayCon, and not on a third-party site. Tickets for BroadwayCon 2018 will go on sale to the general public on April 20, beginning at 1 p.m. Eastern.
Seating in the MainStage is general admission, with the exception of the Platinum Pass. While the MainStage is much larger than the largest Broadway theater (we’re even bigger than the Gershwin!), there may be certain, highly popular events for which the MainStage reaches capacity. When the MainStage reaches capacity, we will stop allowing entry by General or Day Pass-holders. Gold and Platinum Pass-holders are always guaranteed a seat in the room — even when the doors are closed to other attendees. There will be a volunteer stationed outside the MainStage to help Gold passes find a seat somewhere in the room, or to assist Platinum Pass-holders to their reserved seating area at the front. There is no reserved seating for Gold Pass-holders.
We’ll be mailing all BroadwayCon badges to our attendees approximately five weeks prior to the event. When purchasing your ticket, you’ll be asked for your mailing address. We’ll send your credential in the mail, and you’ll be able to bring it with you to check-in on-site! Just scan your badge at one of our kiosks and you’re free to explore the convention!
(Please remember your badge! There will be a $25 fee for replacing a lost or missing badge on-site. Tickets purchased after December 22, 2017 will also be subject to the $25 on-site pickup fee, so be sure to buy your tickets early!)
BroadwayCon has partnered with Affirm to offer easy monthly payments for your tickets! Choose your tickets, select Affirm as your payment method at checkout, and split your purchase into easy monthly payments (subject to approval). Get your tickets right away and pay over time. For all the details, visit: affirm.com/faqs.
We can’t wait to celebrate with you at BroadwayCon 2018!
Maybe you can’t take private voice lessons from the Phantom, but BroadwayCon has the next best thing! Workshops at BroadwayCon give you the chance to get up close and personal with some of the brightest stars on the Great White Way—and learn a thing or two while you’re at it.
Whether it’s been five minutes since you walked out of a voice lesson or 15 years since you last buckled the straps on your character shoes, we’ve got the perfect workshop for you to hone your skills.
We’ve got four workshops on Song Interpretation (including one lead by our friend and co-creator Anthony Rapp) to help you get to the heart of your character’s passions and motivation. Even if you’re not pursuing a degree or career in theatre, these skills can definitely transfer to your show-stopping performance of “I Dreamed a Dream” on karaoke night!
Or, if you’re one who can’t stop the beat, join one of the many dance workshops we’ve got lined up! From Beginner Tap to Advanced Ballet, you’re bound to find something to help you (ahem) keep dancing through life.
You can also challenge yourself to something new at “Vocal Pilates” with James Snyder or “Acro Dance” with Kevin DeJesus-Jones. If you’re wondering what Acro Dance entails, think Spider-Man!
Really, the only thing we don’t have to offer is a baking class from the cast of Waitress.
So do not throw away your shot! Step one is to click here to get tickets to BroadwayCon.
Once you’re registered, tap dance your way over to our Workshops page to see the full list of offerings and submit your application today! There are also limited spaces available for observers, if you’re not ready to be in the spotlight just yet and would prefer to watch.
Applications will be accepted through December 22, so warm up your vocal cords, flex those jazz hands, and brush up on your favorite monologue. We’re ready for you to shine!
We believe that creativity, community, and charity are the key components to creating events with spirit and heart, and that these elements are essential to assure that BroadwayCon is truly representative of the theater community. Toward that aim we are proud to announce that BroadwayCon has partnered with Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS (BC/EFA) and will donate a portion of the proceeds from the event to the nonprofit organization.
BC/EFA is one of the nation’s leading industry-based, nonprofit AIDS fundraising and grant-making organizations. By drawing upon the talents, resources and generosity of the American theatre community, since 1988 BC/EFA has raised more than $250 million for essential services for people with AIDS and other critical illnesses across the United States. We are honored to be associated with their cause.

Mischief Management is dedicated to creating a fun, safe, accepting and welcoming space where fans can celebrate what they love. The safety and security of all attendees is of the utmost importance to us. Please read the below policies carefully before attending BroadwayCon.
At BroadwayCon, the safety of everyone at the event is our first priority. We have a zero tolerance policy for harassment of any kind, including but not limited to: stalking, intimidation, offensive verbal comments, physical assault, battery, harassing photography or recording, continuous disruption of panels or other events, bathroom policing, inappropriate physical contact, and unwelcome physical attention in relation to, but not limited to: age, appearance, body size, gender identity or expression, race or ethnicity, religion, or sexual orientation.
BroadwayCon is a private event, and as such, we reserve the right to remove any person from the event at any time. If a person engages in harassing behavior, BroadwayCon Staff will take prompt action in any form they deem appropriate, including expulsion from BroadwayCon with no refund and contacting the appropriate authorities. Our policy applies to everyone at BroadwayCon, including attendees, exhibitors, speakers, special guests, professionals, press, staff, volunteers, and event security.
If someone’s behavior makes you uncomfortable, or if you witness harassment happening to someone else, you should immediately contact BroadwayCon Staff. BroadwayCon Staff will be designated by staff badges and red staff lanyards. You may also come to the BroadwayCon customer service desk to report an incident.
We ask that you abide by common sense rules to guide your behavior: If someone does not want to interact with you, don’t interact with them. If you do not have permission to touch someone, don’t touch them. We rely on your good judgement and respect for others and their property to create a fun and memorable event, and would hate for you to miss it, so please take a moment to familiarize yourself with these rules so that doesn’t happen!
IF YOU NEED IMMEDIATE HELP
If you feel like your safety or the safety of another person is at risk, then please don’t hesitate to notify a BroadwayCon staff member or security officer. You can also call the BroadwayCon Security hotline for immediate assistance at (646) 481-4438.
In order to maintain a safe space for all attendees and guests, Mischief Management has a zero tolerance policy for real weaponry. Real weapons of any kind are expressly forbidden on the premises of any Mischief Management event. (“Real weapons” are defined here as any object designed or used for inflicting harm on any person). This includes all firearms, martial arts paraphernalia, any knives larger than a pocket knife, and airsoft guns. This also applies to attendees who may have a permit or license to carry said weapon.
Any person found to be carrying a weapon of any kind may be required to turn over the weapon to the security staff and/or to have their ticket for the event revoked and to be removed from the event space.
By attending BroadwayCon, you agree that BroadwayCon and New York Hilton Midtown staff members, who will be clearly designated by visible credentials, may, at any time, inspect any costume, costume weapon, or other items you bring to BroadwayCon, and may remove any person from the event space for violation of this policy.
Please familiarize yourself with our Anti-Harassment Policy. We ask that you abide by common sense rules to guide your behavior. If someone does not want to interact with you, don’t interact with them. This also applies to attendees in cosplay. Always ask before taking photos of or with another attendee, and respect your fellow attendees’ right to say no. If a person engages in harassing behavior, BroadwayCon Staff will take prompt action in any form they deem appropriate, including expulsion from BroadwayCon with no refund and contacting the appropriate authorities.
We understand that our attendees may be cosplaying as characters who carry weaponry. All attendees agree to abide by our Weapons Policy as well as any policies enacted by the VENUE. Prop and/or costume weapons are permitted at BroadwayCon as part of a relevant costume. However, all prop weapons must be:
A. CONSPICUOUSLY FAKE
If your costume weapon looks realistic, federal law requires that it be either translucent enough that the inner mechanics are visible, or at least half-covered with solid white or bright red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, or pink.
B. CLEARLY SAFEGUARDED
Different styles of props will have different needs. Below, please find a non-exhaustive list of ways in which to safeguard your prop weapon.
C. TAGGED BY BROADWAYCON STAFF
Upon arrival, attendees who are wearing costumes that include prop weapons must have their weapons logged and tagged at the BroadwayCon Customer Service Desk.
After you check into BroadwayCon and receive your badge, please proceed to the Customer Service Desk. One of our staff members will examine your prop weapon, catalog it, and tag it with a neon cable tie. A staff member will be available to examine prop weapons at all times during registration hours.
All BroadwayCon attendees and special guests are required to adhere to this Code of Conduct. The BroadwayCon badge is required for admittance to any BroadwayCon function. BroadwayCon reserves the right to revoke, without refund, this badge for noncompliance with these terms, for disorderly conduct including, but not limited to, any behavior that is illegal, unsafe, disruptive, discriminatory, or causes excessive discomfort to another person, or for sale or attempted sale of a badge. Further, BroadwayCon reserves the right to permanently exclude any person who does not comply with the Code of Conduct from future events.
BroadwayCon attendees and special guests are required to adhere to the instructions of all BroadwayCon employees and agents, all security employees and agents, the staff of the New York Hilton Midtown, and any and all law enforcement personnel.
BroadwayCon attendees and special guests agree to observe and comply with any and all policies, rules, and regulations of the New York Hilton Midtown, all laws, statutes, ordinances, rules, and regulations of the Government of the United States, the state of New York, New York County and the city of New York.
You assume any and all risks occurring before, during, or after BroadwayCon. You release BroadwayCon and the New York Hilton Midtown and their agents, licensees, assignees, and their respective affiliates and representatives from any related claims.
PROHIBITIONS Alcohol, illegal drugs, weapons, and items that can be mistaken for weapons are expressly prohibited, even if they are part of a costume.
ACCESS All BroadwayCon functions have limited capacities as determined by the Fire Marshal. Although your badge is required for admittance to all functions, it does not guarantee you access to any function if it has reached its capacity. All autograph and photo booth sessions are of a limited nature, and your badge does not guarantee access to all of them.
