BroadwayCon 2016, a convention for theater geeks to celebrate all things related to the Great White Way, will make its debut from January 22-24, 2016, at the New York Hilton Hotel Midtown, event organizers have announced.

The gathering is expected to be akin to Comic Con, complete with panel discussions, workshops, autograph signings, photo opportunities, a marketplace to purchase Broadway swag, and more, featuring industry professionals and Broadway legends alike. A portion of the proceeds will benefit Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS.

Original Rent and If/Then cast member Anthony Rapp is one of the event's cocreators. "I signed on to help create this event," said Rapp, "not only because it is the first convention for theater fans, and not only because it is a singular opportunity to spend quality time with those who love Broadway most, but because this is the convention that this community deserves."

A full list of participating talent will be revealed in the coming months.
