As someone who’s explored the BroadwayCon 2x already, I can safely say that if you have someone in your world that seems destined for the stage then this is the convention for them. Having already reported on the SCHEDULE REVEAL, I’m excited to share this news that we just received about a new celebrity inclusion. Take a look.

Justin Guarini’s robust performance career launched with the first season of American Idol in 2002. His stage and screen appearances since then include Broadway productions of American Idiot, Romeo and Juliet, Wicked, and Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown.
Justin has hosted shows shows like Idol Wrap and Idol Tonight along with live events for the TV Guide Network, the Oscars, Emmys, and Grammys. He continues to reprise his role as the lovable Lil’ Sweet in commercials for Diet Dr. Pepper.
Justin is a generous humanitarian: he has advocated for music education funding on Capitol Hill by lobbying for the International Music Products Association. He has worked with Education Through Music Los Angeles, a nonprofit utilizing music education as a catalyst to improve academic achievement, motivation for school, and self-confidence in underserved communities. Justin has also partnered with RandomActs.org and GISH.com to participate in global kindness campaigns.
In 2019, Justin founded The Warrior Artist Alliance to help performers achieve success in a challenging industry. He shares his tips, tricks, breadth of experience, and warrior mindset with a community of performers through podcasts, blogs, and dynamic training programs.
BroadwayCon is theatre’s answer to comic-con, tailor made for fans. From January 24-26, 2020, join some of Broadway’s biggest fans, performers, and creators from classic and current shows as we gather at the Hilton Midtown to perform, discuss, debate, and celebrate theatre. BroadwayCon 2020 will feature panels, performances, interviews, workshops, singalongs, and more, all packed into an epic three-day weekend. Past panels have included previews from upcoming Broadway shows, conversations with the casts and creatives of this season’s hits, and discussions featuring the industry’s top producers and designers, not to mention the giant Opening Celebration and nighttime fun and games. BroadwayCon is produced by Mischief Management.

Piercing Ken Thoughts: Though I’ve never followed Justins post Idol career I am happy to find him participating in this fun convention because I am sure that his many experiences can be of value to the younger generation who is seeking to make it big in entertainment. The convention is just under two months away and while I haven’t signed up yet myself to explore it for the website and our social networks, I do plan on attending.
