BronyCon has had many landmark moments during the last six years, with incredible guests and attendees who come from every corner of the globe. Today, we’re happy to announce a brand new face is joining us for 2018 as we welcome the incredibly talented Lena Hall to Baltimore this July 27-29!
I am SO EXCITED for this. I absolutely loved her episode The Mane Attraction. I even did an episode of my Brony Show HOOF ROCK about the two songs featured in it. You can check it out below.
Hall is most well known for her work in theatre both off and on Broadway. Her experience includes a Tony-winning Broadway run in “Hedwig and the Angry Inch” and a tour through North America with Josh Groban on his “Stages” tour. She portrayed the dual starring roles of both Hedwig and Yitzhak in “Hedwig and the Angry Inch” in Los Angeles and San Francisco but of you’re a rocker like myself I would HIGHLY recommend checking out her rock band THE DEAFENING
In her 2014 Tony Award acceptance speech for “Best Featured Actress in a Musical,” Hall shot herself into the eyes of many “MLP” fans. After thanking her family, friends, the Broadway community and countless others for helping her in her journey she ended with the phrase “friendship is magic.”
Hall learned all about the magic of friendship as the voice of Coloratura in the “My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic” episode “The Mane Attraction” in 2015. In the episode, Coloratura reunites with her fillyhood friend Applejack for a charity concert and learns to be true to herself and not what others want her to be. Hall’s performance in the episode included the three songs, “Equestria, The Land I Love,” “The Spectacle,” and “The Magic Inside” – the latter of which was released as a teaser storyboard animatic at the 2015 San Diego Comic Con.
