MCC Theater’s annual gala, Miscast, streamed online this year due to the pandemic. However, the Off-Broadway theater still pulled off a terrific line-up of performances showcasing actors in roles that they’d likely never play.
Founded in 1986 as Manhattan Class Company, the theater has produced provocative and award-winning new works, including All the Natalie Portmans, The Legend of Georgia McBride, Ride the Cyclone, Wit and more. The evening featured many performers who have found an artistic home at MCC, including Judith Light, Joshua Henry and others.
Highlights include Ingrid Michaelson and Lauren Ridloff performing “You Will Be Found” from Dear Evan Hansen; Adrienne Warren performing “Before the Parade Passes By” from Hello, Dolly! and Isaac Powell performing “On My Own” from Les Misérables, just to name a few.
Have a watch… but only through September 17! And if you’re able, consider donating to MCC Theater to support their groundbreaking work.
