Hillary Clinton will be appearing at this year’s BroadwayCon.
Clinton will moderate a panel entitled “Here’s to the Ladies: Hillary Rodham Clinton Live at BroadwayCon.”
The panel features Vanessa Williams, Julie White and LaChanze, and will take place on the BroadwayCon mainstage on July 8 at 1 p.m.
Clinton will be on hand to help facilitate the conversation, which will touch upon topics including work in theatre, the accomplishments of the panelists, and looking ahead to the barriers that have not yet been broken.
“Hillary Clinton is a massive Broadway fan and patron, and she reminds us all that the arts are a powerful part of our cultural existence,” BroadwayCon co-founder and CEO of Mischief Management, Melissa Anelli told Broadway News. “The depth of her experience, the strength of her passion for theatre, and her ability to tie together the stories of our world and the stories of our lives, make her an absolutely exceptional choice to sit with some of these legendary women for a one-of-a-kind panel.”
BroadwayCon 2022 will be held July 8-11 at the New Yorker Hotel and The Manhattan Center.
The convention was previously scheduled for January but was postponed due to concerns related to COVID-19.
The 2021 convention was held virtually due to the pandemic.
More than 130 panels and events are scheduled to take place throughout the weekend, featuring current and past Broadway shows, behind-the-scenes insights, meet and greets and more.
