BroadwayCon began when he met Rent fan Anelli outside the stage door, she was 16. He started communicating with her and a bunch of other people, who were also active on AOL Rent chat boards. Rapp was 24 at the time I would talk to his fans and get to know them. The two went on to write the New York Times best-selling book “Harry, A History: The True Story of a Boy Wizard, His Fans, and Life Inside the Harry Potter Phenomenon.”

The team conceived BroadwayCon as a three-day event that would give fans an all-access experience with performers, musicians, dancers, choreographers, writers, designers and more. “We want this to be a way that theatre artists could directly interact with fans,” stated Rapp.

This year Rapp entertained at The BroadwayCon Cabaret singing a new Tom Kitt song and “Happiness” from You’re a Good Man Charlie Brown.
