I found the idea and intention of this to be a fantastic opportunity that, for the most part, missed the mark. I came full of anticipation of the intellectual challenge and sharing of ideas that would start us down a path of thinking differently...continued

I found some of the presentations to be interesting, but on the whole, I felt there was a lack of substance. For example, I was surprised that there wasn't any substantive discussion of theatre criticism, labor relations, or producing costs. Since...continued

Best industry event I've attended in 20 years. The TED format for presentations should be adopted by every arts conference in the country. Smart speakers, on point, incisive, relevant and well worth my time. If you missed this you can kick...continued

Good first try. I think you could have upgraded some of the presenters.

I attended as a follower of cultural trends, and an NYC creative-industry professional. I found the TEDxBroadway event stimulating and engaging. In the midst of a dozen interesting presentations, there were five -- Martin, Larson, Gullans,...continued

I can say I went to the first ever TEDxBroadway. Overall, it didn't feel like a TEDx event. My walk away from the conference was very confusing and conflicting - I wasn't inspired. I couldn't see the future of Broadway in 2032. While the speakers...continued

It was great to have a frank, wide-ranging, out-of-the-box think about the future of Broadway. The multi-disciplined speakers brought lots of fresh perspective and the format gave everyone a chance to connect between presentations. I think...continued

What an incredible day! I left feeling full of energy and new ideas, and I am excited for the future rather than scared. This is an event that should be held annually!
