Piercing Ken Thoughts: This is some cool news and its nice to find that the BroadwayCon will be up on Times Square for this next go-round. I attended the event at the Manhattan Center and the New Yorker Hotel and will admit that it was quite a bit of navigating to be one thing to the next. The main stage was way upstairs while the Marketplace down on the ground floor and many panels in the hotel around the corner. Whew, I get tired again just typing it but can honestly say that those who were in attendance had a really great time. It’s a really well done event and while it might seem pricier than some of the other conventions of the day, this one has such a dedicated focus to the Broadway scene and its vendors so if Broadway is your thing you’re going to want to look into this one. I’ll wrap this up now and direct the interested to the first of several clips that were recorded at the 2022 event. You can also chime in down below in the comments section if you like. It’s always awesome to hear from the readership. See you next time, please stay safe out there.
