A Broadway Conversation and Q&A

Moderated by Tony Award-winning Producer Ken Davenport

Featuring 8 Broadway Actors and a Director
Wed, January 27, at 7pm ET

State Theatre New Jersey presents a one-night only online conversation all about Broadway and moderated by Tony® Award-winning Producer Ken Davenport (Kinky Boots, Spring Awakening, Once on This Island). The panelists—many who have recently performed at State Theatre New Jersey—have appeared in hit national tours such as Jersey Boys, RENT, The King and I, Motown the Musical, Beautiful—The Carole King Musical, Something Rotten!, The Color Purple, A Gentleman's Guide to Love & Murder, and Cabaret. Topics will include a behind-the-scenes look at the life of a touring actor, what it's like to be a part of an iconic show, diversity and inclusion in the arts, character preparation, and more. Some audience questions, submitted in advance, will be used during the discussion. This event will take place on Zoom.
