A new slew of Broadway stars have been added to the list of performers set to perform at MCC Theater's annual Miscast gala, to be held on Monday, March 31, at the Hammerstein Ballroom. This year's event will honor two-time Tony nominee Allison Janney (The West Wing, 9 to 5).
Joining the roster are Tony winner Billy Porter (Kinky Boots), Tony nominee Jeremy Jordan (Smash, Newsies), Megan Hilty (Smash, 9 to 5), and Tony nominee Raúl Esparza (Company). Previously announced performers include Tony winners Christian Borle, Anika Noni Rose, and Lin-Manuel Miranda, as well as Steven Pasquale, Jesse L. Martin, Keala Settle, Nicole Parker, Zosia Mamet, and The Voice finalist Sasha Allen. Phil Reno will serve as musical director. Additional performers will be announced at a later date.
Four-time Tony nominee and film star Victor Garber will host the event for the second year in a row. Proceeds from Miscast 2014 will support MCC's development and production of off-Broadway work as well as its Youth Company and partnerships with New York City public high schools and the theater's literary development work with emerging playwrights.
