Billy Porter, Kelli O’Hara, Renée Elise Goldsberry, and More Announced For MCC’s MISCAST21
MCC Theater has announced part of the lineup for their upcoming Miscast 21, which will premiere on Saturday, May 16, 2021 on the theater’s YouTube channel.
The annual gala is one of the most anticipated and exciting theater events in New York each year. This spring, the biggest stars of stage and screen will once again take to the virtual stage to sing songs from roles in which they would not traditionally be cast, inviting theater fans from around the world to join in the celebration.
Miscast21 will include performances from Tony Award winner Annaleigh Ashford (“B Positive,” Kinky Boots), Tony Award nominee Robin de Jesús (tick, tick... Boom!), Tony Award winner Renée Elise Goldsberry (Hamilton), Tony Award winner LaChanze (Summer: The Donna Summer Musical, The Color Purple), Tony Award winner Kelli O’Hara (The King and I, South Pacific), and Tony and Emmy Award winner Billy Porter (“Pose,” Kinky Boots). More performers will be announced closer to the event’s date.
Will Van Dyke (Little Shop of Horrors, Pretty Woman) serves as Musical Supervisor and Director.
The free broadcast will be captioned, and will feature brand new performances, special guests, and more. Funds raised from Miscast21 help MCC Theater produce exciting new work Off-Broadway and support its Youth Company and in-school partnerships.
