Alex Newell Will Host BroadwayCon's First Look Featuring COMPANY, CAROLINE, OR CHANGE, SING STREET and More

At BroadwayCon's First Look, attendees will be treated to an exclusive showcase of performances from the newest and most talked-about shows of the season. Hosted by Alex Newell, Broadway alum and star of NBC's new television series "Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist," First Look will feature ten shows, all performing exclusively for BroadwayCon fans. Newly added to the lineup are Caroline, or Change, Company, and Sing Street.

At BroadwayCon 2018, Newell performed his show-stopping number, "Mama Will Provide" from Once on This Island, as part of a celebration of songwriting team Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty.
