The 9th annual TEDXBroadway event will be held virtually this year on Tuesday, November 17 at 1pm EST.
"Since 2011, we've been asking all stake-holders of the Broadway ecosystem to question, 'What's the best Broadway can be?' And, while we all wish the answer was just even open, this will be a watershed moment for the community to address this mission-critical question with even greater urgency, immediacy and, well, hope for the future," says TEDxBroadway Co-Founder Damian Bazadona of Situation. TEDxBroadway will feature a wide variety of topics and talks from speakers with varying perspectives and unique ideas. (Speakers will be announced soon according to Broadway World)
This year's virtual program will run two hours and feature powerful talks combined with the music, entertainment and the signature surprises for which it has become known.
