WHILE BROADWAY IS DARK,
THE LIGHTS AT BROADWAY FANTASY CAMP SHINE!
Come meet the stars while safe at home!
We'll wave now, and hug later!
We've moved from a private dining room at Sardi's to our own private Zoom Room!
Broadway stars invite you to join them in their own homes! You'll hear their stories about their Broadway debut, onstage mishaps, staying motivated while staying home, and more!
Then, you may be able to ask your question "face to face," so come prepared! At Broadway Fantasy Camp, you don't have to struggle for your questions to be seen in the chat of a livestream. Broadway Banter sessions are about an hour and a limited number of tickets are available!
During these challenging times, Broadway Fantasy Camp invites hospital workers to enjoy one of our experiences. For every 25 tickets sold, a free ticket will be donated to a hospital worker on the frontlines of the pandemic. Hospital workers: click here to let us know if you'd like to be our guest at an upcoming Broadway Banter!
HERE'S THE UPCOMING LINEUP:
Alex Lacamoire: Friday August 7 at 5:00pm EDT
(Hamilton, Dear Evan Hansen, In the Heights, "Fosse/Verdon" on FX)
Alex Lacamoire is an award-winning music director, arranger, and composer. He is best known for his work on Broadway's critically-acclaimed shows Hamilton, Dear Evan Hansen, and In The Heights. Altogether, he has won three Tonys for Best Orchestrations, three Grammys for Best Musical Theater Album, an additional Grammy for producing The Greatest Showman soundtrack, and most recently, an Emmy for Outstanding Music Direction for his work in FX’s mini-series Fosse/Verdon. He was also the recipient of a first-of-its-kind Kennedy Center Honors for his contribution to Hamilton. Lacamoire and the Hamilton creative team were honored as the “trailblazing creators of a transformative work that defies category” — a distinction never before awarded by the arts institution.
Corey Cott: Sunday, August 9 at 1:00pm EDT
(Newsies, Gigi, Bandstand)
Corey's message to you: While I'm sheltering with my family in Pennsylvania, I'd love to meet you! We can chat about backstage shenanigans, my new Fox show coming this fall – which I’m excited about, how we're staying sane during quarantine, and more. I want to know what you're excited about!
PAST STARS INCLUDE:
Laura's message to you: In the midst of this unprecedented time, I am so grateful we are getting creative with ways to stay connected! I can’t wait to spend the afternoon with fellow Broadway-lovers and theater-goers at our Broadway Banter session. I think Broadway Fantasy Camp is finding some of my old YouTube videos, so we’ll all be surprised together! We are all missing Broadway and I know this conversation will be nostalgic, inspiring, and entertaining!
Telly's message to you: Good morning! Wake up with me! We'll wear PJ's, drink coffee, chat. I'll take questions. Maybe I'll start my day with a song for you all. Socially distant doesn't mean we have to be socially disconnected - and I look forward to hanging out with you and seeing how you are during these interesting times! (And for my friends in Asia, this will be "good night" instead of "good morning").
Santino's message to you: It’s always 5 o’clock somewhere – I’m excited to have cocktail/mocktails with you while we visit in the Broadway Fantasy Camp Zoom Room! Who knows, maybe I’ll sing a few bars, maybe you’ll hear a baby crying in the background... But no matter what, it will be great to have some face-to-face time with all of you and share some laughs!
Jenn's message to you: I'm looking forward to creating a community through Broadway Banter. This is not just a Q&A session... I want to hear the voices of my fans, expressing how they are feeling during this time and what they can do to stay creative. I want us to create a dialogue together to lift one another up in this very strange time. This opportunity to "hang out" with my fans, and for them to get to know one another, makes my heart soar.
Lilli's message to you: Join me for a great convo to kick off the weekend. Come for the stories and laughs, and stay for the pups!
(Beautiful: The Carole King Musical, The Band's Visit, Mamma Mia!, Jesus Christ Superstar)
Chilina's message to you: I am excited to spend some intimate time with theatre fans who want to hear stories, ask questions and engage in discussions they are passionate about. Let’s have a fun and positive way to engage with each other in this unprecedented time.
(Olivier Award winner; Matilda the Musical, Zorro the Musical, Emojiland; Dames at Sea)
Lesli's message to you: This is a crazy nutso time, but I'm a little crazy nutso too, as you know! Join me for a no holds barred, 149% honest conversation. Ask me anything – I don't understand the value in sugar coating…unless I can eat it: then yes, sugar coat away. We are all going through something now, so why not do it together. BONUS- its TONY weekend!!! Let's cry and talk about the season that is on hold. I won't have washed my hair, so don't worry- you don't need to either!
Jenn & Chilina's Message to you: What better way to celebrate Pride than sharing music, stories and laughter with our awesome fans? We're thrilled to return to Broadway Banter to discuss all things theatre and Pride – and maybe sing an apt "Pride" duet from Chilina's show! Come, have a drink with us, and share what's in your beautiful hearts. We can't wait to see you there!
Jenna's message to you: With over 20 years of professional experience as an actress, I am so excited to be able to connect with all of you and share advice, stories, encouragement, and a little humor to help guide this beautiful new generation of artists during this new time.
