Brian Hester reporting


Broadway Con 2020 kicked off yesterday with a day packed with panels and performances. I must admit this is my first Broadway Con and I didn't know what to expect going in to yesterdays sessions. Wow!!! Simply amazing. I can't believe that are still two full days remaining. For today please accept a short photo teaser update posted here. Check back throughout the next few days for updates and photo captions. Also video interviews being added later today. Stay tuned. I do need to provide info on just the first photo. A huge thank you to the amazing Melissa Anelli CEO, Mischief Management. Check back... Stay Tuned... Much Much more to come from Broadway Con 2020 taking place again today and tomorrow at the New York Hilton Midtown.
