BroadwayCon is a three-day expo where fans can meet and interact with their favorite Broadway stars. It’s a showcase of some of Broadway’s newest and most exciting shows. It’s a place where industry professionals can work one-on-one with the next generation of up-and-coming performers. Most of all, BroadwayCon is a place where fans can come together celebrate their passions and revel in the magic that is the theatre.
Well how about that my friends, it appears as though we’ve once again arrived at the time where the Instagram “Top Nine” images are tabulated and that means you get to enjoy them as well. Over the course of 2018, I really was enjoying the use of Instagram as a social networking tool and I’m fairly certain that I used it a lot more than any of the other socials combined. The rundown will come after the image below so please take a gander. I figured that I’d offer up some background on them all.
About These Visuals: Starting from the top left hand corner we’ve got my favorite girl Spooke the Black Cat and she actually made the Top Nice twice this year. The first one is from a vet visit for a quick check up and the other was just her chilling out on my office chair that she likes. There are two photos of me with the first one being from the Style Fashion Week step and repeat area while the other when I was dressed all Southern casual while visiting my family down South. The second row also features two images from the NY Empire State Tattoo Expo which I was honored to wander as a member of the lifestyle media. The extremely lovely ladies pictured from each in a left to right fashion are Ryan Ashley, Nikki Simpson (from an Inked tattoo reality program) and burlesque goddesses LuLu D’Vil, Bon Bon Cherry and Frankie Fictitious. Whew, such talent. The last row are two visuals from BroadwayCon which I attended for the very first time and loved it. Last but not least is a steaming plate of Polish food that my mother made when I was visiting down South. It was so danged good that I had seconds and you know what else was good? Our year in Instagram because I had a blast uploading and sharing all of these and so many more adventures with those who happen by. According to their tally, the account recieved 11.3K likes for the sum total of our 2,860 posted images. I believe we’ve grown by about 60 followers over the year to 681. Let’s see how much closer I can get to 1K on this account over the course of the soon to arrive 2019 year.
Earlier in the year, I attended my first-ever BroadwayCon which was held at the Javits Center. The other day we learned of some news about the 2019 convention on their blog so we’ve shared this press release with you below should this happening be of interest to you.
The Press Release:
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.

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!

Surprise my friends and “Welcome Back” once more to my overview of the 2018 BroadwayCon. As I noted at the closing of my “Act 2” posting, I had secured a press badge and was welcomed back to the event but at the time I was unsure if I would finish with the Progressive Boat Show and the New York Times Travel Show which were running concurrently in the Javits Center over the same few days. Luckily, I did finish and made sure to go back to it and if you didn’t see the chapters, err “ACTS” that preceded this one, just click HERE to be up to speed. I had such a good time with that other day so was looking forward to adding some more to this serialized narrative. Let’s go.
Hello once again my friends and welcome back to my overview of the 2018 BroadwayCon. Hopefully you didn’t miss what was discussed in “Act I” but if you did just click HERE to be up to speed. This is especially important since I am now picking up from where I left off. Sometimes I will let the images do the talking and at others I will offer up something about it. Let’s go.
