Broadway has been a staple in the entertainment industry for decades — even longer if you consider the first long-run musical, “The Elves,” which premiered back in 1857. Since then, this genre has evolved into the powerhouse we know it to be today. Patrons from all over the world come to New York City to experience it first-hand. Metropolitan cities worldwide have also adopted their own theater districts — from London, England, to Toronto.
While the shows themselves have garnered many fans, so have the performers of these shows. Broadway actors and actresses have earned their own fans and followers — admirers of their work who follow them from show to show. Broadway fans love to connect with their favorite performers, and today there are more ways to do just that.
Let’s take a closer look at some of the ways you, as a Broadway fan, can stay connected and engage with your favorite performers.
These days, Broadway stars aren’t just accessible on stage. They’re also putting additional just dropped content online for fans to enjoy. Whether it’s through streaming platforms or their own personal websites, your favorite actor or actress is sure to have another channel of content that you can consume. Because you can often consume this content on any mobile device, you can take your favorite Broadway stars with you wherever you go.

There’s no better way to feel connected to your favorite Broadway performer than to be physically in their presence, watching them do what they love on stage. Live theater is one of the best ways to feel like your part of a community — everyone is there to experience the same story and the same emotions.
Plus, going to live shows is one of the best ways to support their careers — both by providing the support and audience engagement they need and also by financially supporting their careers.
Every performer in entertainment has a website — a hub where new and current fans can go to stay up-to-date with live performances, announcements, awards and accolades and more. From an algorithm standpoint, the more times you visit their website, the more a search engine is going to recognize its validity and popularity. This means you’re helping to promote said performer and allow them to reach more fans online.
Plus, if they have a newsletter, you can sign up and receive to-the-minute announcements directly to your email inbox.
