MCC Theater’s annual Miscast gala, which has become an anticipated highlight of the theatrical spring season, will take place April 1 at The Hammerstein Ballroom.
Each year, Broadway's biggest stars turn out to take part in the evening that gives them the chance to perform a role in which they would never be cast. A mix of tongue-in-cheek renditions and show-stopping, once-in-a-life-time performances, Miscast has become a hot ticket for industry insiders and theatre fans alike.
Past participants have included Lin-Manuel Miranda, Ben Platt, Tina Fey, Tituss Burgess, Aaron Tveit, Cynthia Erivo, Jonathan Groff, Sutton Foster, Raúl Esparza, Steven Pasquale, Jeremy Jordan, Laura Benanti, Jesse L. Martin, Zosia Mamet, Jane Krakowski, Megan Hilty, and Uzo Aduba.
Talent for the 2019 Miscast will be announced shortly. Gala tickets and tables are now on sale.
Miscast 2019 will honor performer and playwright Ren Santiago, a former member of MCC’s Theater Youth Company, with the MCC Theater Youth Company Alumni Award.
The gala will also honor longtime MCC board members Marianne Mills and Harold Newman, who co-chaired MCC's $45 million fundraising initiative to build its new two-theatre complex in Hell’s Kitchen. MCC’s new home will include the 245-seat Newman Mills Theater, named for Newman and Mills, in recognition of their leadership support of the campaign.
MCC Artistic Directors Robert LuPone, Bernard Telsey, and William Cantler, are joined by Executive Director Blake West.
MCC subscribers have early access to show-only tickets. Show-only mezzanine level tickets will be on sale to the general public in early 2019. To purchase gala tickets, please visit mcctheater.org.
