Justice Moore, James Monroe Iglehart, Anthony Rapp, and Nik Walker discuss their love for all things geeky
Broadway Nerds panel

Broadway stars, they’re just like us, and by that, I mean they are huge nerds who love all things geeky ranging from comics, movies, role playing games, and theme parks. And some of those biggest nerds took center stage at New York Comic Con for their Big Broadway Nerd Panel!

Popverse will be adding great panels from the ReedPop archives each week, as well as livestreaming panels from the upcoming New York Comic Con, MCM Comic Con, C2E2, and Emerald City Comic Con. These are benefits for Popverse members, so if you haven't signed up yet there's still time.

Moderated by Bryan Campione, creative director at Playbill at the time of this article, the 2021 New York Comic Con panel featured Justice Moore (Hamilton, Barney & Friends), James Monroe Iglehart (Aladdin, Hamilton), Anthony Rapp (Rent, If/Then), and Nik Walker (Hamilton, Ain't Too Proud - The Life and Times of The Temptations). These Broadway stars discuss what makes them a nerd, share their current and all-time favorite geeky franchises, their first experience with cosplay, and how they would have nerd nights with their fellow Broadway castmates!

Wish you could’ve been 'in the room where it happened?' Well, the full panel is available for your enjoyment:

This upcoming New York Comic Con, you can watch panels like this (and many more) streamed or VOD as part of a Popverse membership. That's one of the many things Popverse will be doing as part of our NYCC coverage.
