MCC Theater has added even more names to its previously announced Miscast 2023 concert. The gala is set for April 3 at Hammerstein Ballroom in NYC. Miscast23 will honor Emmy, Grammy, and Tony nominee Vanessa Williams and MCC Youth Company alum Lianny Toval.
Each year Miscast proves to be one of the industry's favorite events, featuring Broadway stars performing songs from roles in which they might not be traditionally cast. In addition to the live performance, MCC is partnering with The League of Live Stream Theater to broadcast Miscast23 April 10 at 7 PM ET. Following the premiere, the broadcast will be available to view on-demand until April 16.
Newly announced performers include Jordan E. Cooper (Ain’t No Mo’, The Ms. Pat Show), Jordan Donica (My Fair Lady, Camelot), Jose Llana (Here Lies Love, The King and I), Dylan Mulvaney (Day 365 Live!), NaTasha Yvette Williams (Some Like It Hot, Chicago), and Golden Globe winner Rachel Zegler (West Side Story, Snow White).
They join previously announced performers Tony winner Annaleigh Ashford (Sweeney Todd), Tony nominee Denée Benton (Into the Woods), Lorna Courtney (& Juliet), Tony winner André De Shields (Hadestown), Tony nominee Josh Groban (Sweeney Todd), Tony winner LaChanze (Trouble in Mind, The Color Purple), Bonnie Milligan (Kimberly Akimbo), Tony winner Ben Platt (Parade, Dear Evan Hansen), and Eleri Ward (A Perfect Little Death, Only Gold).
Miscast fans can also get in on the action this year via #MCCMISCASTME on TikTok and Instagram by performing a 30-second snippet of their favorite song from a role in which they would not traditionally be cast, for a chance to be featured on MCC social media accounts following the virtual streaming week. Submissions are open from March 21 through April 2.
