MCC Theater’s annual Miscast gala is one of the most exciting and unique theater events in town. Broadway’s hottest stars perform songs from roles in which they would NEVER be cast. And the results are thrilling! This year was no different with performance from some of our favorite talents. Below you’ll see video performances from the show.
Watch Uzo Aduba take on the role of Sweeny Todd singing “A Little Priest” from Sweeny Todd. As well as Josuha Henry & Leslie Odom Jr. in a hilarious “Cell Block Tango” from Chicago. Henry also let the audience know he feels like a “Natural Women” as he sings Carol King’s song from the musical Beautiful! Watch the selected performances below including Annaleigh Ashford singing “Slide Some Oil To Me” from The Wiz, which is actually pretty good so, don’t sleep on it! You can also view additional performances from the event on MCC Theater’s Youtube page.
Funds raised from Miscast help MCC Theater produce some of the most talked-about new work Off-Broadway and support their Youth Company and in-school partnerships that serve New York City public high school students, as well as their literary development work with emerging playwrights.
