Plans for second TEDxBroadway conference revealed
NEW YORK (AP) — The second annual TEDxBroadway — a conference focusing on Broadway's future — will kick off on Jan. 28.
The one-day event will feature such speakers as Thomas Schumacher, the president of Disney Theatrical Group; set designer Christine Jones; and producer Randi Zuckerberg.
The event will be held at New World Stages in New York City.
At last year's conference, participants discussed everything from Broadway's aging audience, its fragmented and maddening ticketing systems, the often poor experience it gives patrons, the power of social networks to harness fans and the continuing need to attract world-class talent.
TEDx events are independently organized but inspired by the nonprofit group TED — standing for Technology, Entertainment, Design — that started in 1984 as a conference dedicated to "ideas worth spreading."
