In a statement, guest of honor Marisa Tomei said, “I have a deep love for MCC Theater and the important work it champions. That love affair started in MCC’s first season when I took on the role of Blue in Alan Bowne’s world premiere of Beirut. My experience with MCC has guided me ever since. The relationships I made, the knowledge I gained – so much of that is still a part of my life today. I am thrilled to be honored at the Miscast Gala and play a role in this celebratory night supporting the essential work that defines MCC Theater.”

The gala will include cocktails, a silent auction, dinner, an honoree celebration and a revue.

Show-only mezzanine level tickets are now on sale and begin at $99, with $149 show-only premium seats at MCCTheater.org/galamiscast.html. To purchase gala tickets, contact Nick Vermane at (212) 727-7722, ext. 232 or via email at nvername@mcctheater.org.
