During the third and final day of BroadwayCon, the founders of BroadwayHD united for "An Artist's Perspective of Stage to Screen." The founders, Stewart F. Lane and Bonnie Comley, along with Ellie Heyman, Max Vernon and Leah Lan, gave a panel and attended the reception for the event and BroadwayWorld was there. Check out the photos below!

BroadwayCon is theatre's answer to comic-con, tailor made for fans. From January 11-13, 2019, some of Broadway's biggest fans, performers, and creators from classic and current shows gathered at the Hilton Midtown to perform, discuss, debate, and celebrate theatre. BroadwayCon 2019 featured panels, performances, interviews, workshops, singalongs, and more, all packed into an epic three-day weekend. Past panels have included previews from upcoming Broadway shows, conversations with the casts and creatives of this season's hits, and discussions featuring the industry's top producers and designers. BroadwayCon is produced by Mischief Management.

The fourth annual BroadwayCon was held at the Midtown Hilton this past weekend. Thousands of theater fans from around the world participated in the three-day expo where fans met and interacted with their favorite Broadway stars. The event included showcases of some of Broadway's newest and most exciting shows, one-on-one workshops with the next generation of up-and-coming performers, autograph sessions, a marketplace, panels and discussions about the current state of Broadway as well as the future of Broadway.

One panel titled, "An Artist's Perspective of Stage to Screen" was a conversation about the future of capturing stage performances for new musicals. BroadwayHD founders, Bonnie Comley and Stewart F. Lane, were joined by Max Vernon (KPOP, View From Upstairs), Ellie Heyman (Beardo) and Leah Lane (Carmen High) to talk about how streaming performances are making Broadway shows accessible to a global audience. BroadwayHD is the first and only streaming platform with over 270 full-length musicals and plays available for streaming over the Internet and the subscription-based company is adding new content every month.

The panelists spoke about the value of high quality digital theater productions with regard to their work. As a composer, Vernon said he wants the entire world to have the ability to see his shows. Heyman felt the ability to access Broadway talent will encourage more people to attend their local theater and Leah Lane, expressed the educational value of young performers learning from seeing other professionals at the pinnacle of their careers. All the panelists agreed that the best way to experience a musical is in the Broadway theater but if you missed a limited run, or can't get to New York or a major Broadway touring theater, then a digital capture is great alternative.
