State Theatre New Jersey presents a not-to-be missed, one-night only online conversation all about Broadway and moderated by Tony® Award-winning Producer Ken Davenport (Kinky Boots, Spring Awakening, Once on This Island). Featuring Broadway actors and creative artists, the panelists—many who have recently performed at State Theatre New Jersey—have appeared in hit national tours such as Jersey Boys, Beautiful—The Carole King Musical, RENT, The King and I, Motown the Musical, Something Rotten!, The Color Purple, and Cabaret. Panel topics include a behind-the-scenes look at the life of a touring actor, what it's like to be a part of an iconic show, character preparation, the importance of the arts, diversity and inclusion in the arts, and what they miss most during the pandemic. Some audience questions, submitted in advance, will be used during the discussion.  This event will take place on Zoom.
