Billy Porter, Jeremy Jordan, Megan Hilty and Raúl Esparza have joined MCC Theater's annual Miscast gala, which will take place March 31 at the Hammerstein Ballroom.

The benefit, which brings together theatre stars to perform songs from shows and roles in which they'd never be cast, will again be hosted by Victor Garber (Sweeney Todd, Present Laughter).

Porter, Jordan, Hilty and Esparza join a lineup that features the previously announced Zosia Mamet, Christian Borle, Anika Noni Rose, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Steven Pasquale, Jesse L. Martin, Sasha Allen, Keala Settle and Nicole Parker. Phil Reno will serve as musical director. The 2014 Miscast gala will honor Allison Janney.

Proceeds support MCC Theater's mission to develop and produce work Off-Broadway, its Youth Company and partnerships with New York City public high schools, and MCC's literary development work with emerging playwrights.



Gala tickets begin at $600, with mezzanine level show-only tickets available for $79. Regular seating is available by phoning (212) 352-3101.
