We got day passes for Friday only, which was plenty fine because we saw and heard a lot! Plus, there's a blizzard hitting us this weekend as well.
We arrived at the Hilton Midtown Hotel, where this "Comic Con for Broadway nerds" is being held on two floors of conference rooms, at 9 am, where we joined the back of a snaking line for check-in. Check-in went quickly once we got to the booth and we both received bright yellow swag bags, which included a Playbill for the entire weekend, a Sharpie, a pen, a sticker, some sponsors' advertisements, and we received badges!
If I qualify at all as a musical theater nerd, it's a combo of loving storytelling, memorizing lyrics quickly for some freakish reason, being a tad overdramatic, and going to college with a group of theater majors.
Writing is show business for shy people :-)
