The event features Broadway's hottest stars performing songs from roles in which they would never be cast. The musical director for the evening will be Phil Reno.
The gala will honor the creators of the musical Carrie: composer Michael Gore, lyricist Dean Pitchford, and writer Lawrence D. Cohen "for their bold, daring, risk-taking spirit." MCC is presenting a reworked revival of Carrie, directed by Stafford Arima and starring Marin Mazzie and Molly Ranson, which is currently running at the Lucille Lortel Theatre through April 22.
Funds raised from Miscast will go to help MCC Theater produce new work Off Broadway and to 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.
