a lady. So here we have a birthday cake for the Phantom
of the Opera! [Jenny] It’s not BroadwayCon without the Phantom
and Raoul. Aww man. [Lindsey] I have no voice so.. [Jenny] Rest those vocal chords, dear Phantom. [Lindsey] It’s not my BroadwayCon. [Jenny] Man, so this is like, this is our
friendship is like, once a year at BroadwayCon, Andrew Lloyd Webber crew hangs out. I love it. [Lindsey] Yeah. We need to hang out more though ’cause we

[Jenny] Hi [Jenny] It was Rumpelteazer, not Mungojerry
[Shannon] It was, it was. [Jenny] That’s what I…
[Shannon] It was Rumpelteazer. [Jenny]…that’s what I think. [Shannon]It was Rumpelteazer. [Jenny] Explain to me what just happened. [Girls] Um, we saw MagicCatJenny! And we love her! Yeahh!!

[Jenny] Don’t make me cry I’ll ruin my makeup. [Ilana]Singing is definitely the answer to
recharge, right? [Britton] I was gonna say, that’s a way in. I mean, if you can get together and sing about
the issue or like use like an artistic lense. The arts bring like about a level of hope
that I don’t know many other forms that do that. [Jenny] How’s it going? [Kacie] Good, waiting for In the Heights. [Jenny] How has BroadwayCon differed this
from last year? [Kacie] There’s a lot more people, there’s
a lot more people. I wanna sleep, but I’m good. I’m very good, I’m very happy. [Jenny] Yeah. I’m very happy too. [Jenny] BroadwayCon day two. It’s Belle. [Chris] Bonjour

what do you look forward to most about BroadwayCon? [Kate] I look forward to most are the people
that I meet, i.e. like miss Jenny here. It’s just incredible, you get to be somewhere
and when you’re in a room full of people who love something and you love it too it’s just,
it’s so much love that goes around, and excitement, and the energy in the room is incredible. Yay!! * Kelli O’Hara singing Pure Imagination * [Anthony Rapp] It’s been a really crazy year,
that 2017, that we lived through. I think most people in this room probably
agree. We had this to look forward, we hope you had
this to look forward to. I think that this has proven that this community
can create an oasis of hope and positivity and love and joy in this sort of, sea of nonsense that we’re having to navigate these days. So thank you. You know, you’ve helped lift us up and we’ll help lift you up. * Kelli O’Hara singing Pure Imagination * [Kelli] Thank you, Anthony Rapp. * Kelli O’Hara singing Pure Imagination * [Jenny] So, BroadwayCon 2018 has just come to a close. [Bronwyn] It’s over. [Jenny] I feel like I’ve ended every BroadwayCon
with you, like by my side. [Bronwyn] That is very true. Like, end of year selfies. I remember last year, I remember that, I still have those. [Jenny] Yup. [Bronwyn] It’s been fun. [Jenny] It’s been fun, I love it. [Bronwyn] Yeah, it’s amazing. [Jenny] Meow. * Everyone singing On Broadway *
