Jay Armstrong Johnson perf. “Stroke by Stroke” from Jasper in Deadland
On Friday, January 26, BroadwayCon will open at the Javits Center with a brand-new forty-five minute musical by RSO, featuring Alice Ripley, Carolee Carmello, Anthony Rapp, James Monroe Iglehart, LESLI MARGHERITA and more.
RSO wrote the script and an original song for the piece — which tells the story of Carl (Sam Tanabe) who must stop the hateful, corrupt politician @Mayoress (Lesli Margherita) from banning Broadway! Additional material is by Tessa Netting, David Alpert and Andrew Briedis.
Thousands of Broadway fans are expected to attend the second-ever BroadwayCon. From celebrity talkbacks, to first-look performances and workshops, BroadwayCon 2017 will be packed with unforgettable experiences. BroadwayCon brings you through the stage door to be part of the excitement that happens onstage and behind-the-scenes. It is a place where Broadway fans come together to celebrate the shows they love with people who bring them to life. It’s co-presented by Playbill, Mischief Management, and Anthony Rapp.
