MCC Theater will honor Laura Linney at this season's Miscast gala, to take place Monday, April 1, 2019, at the Hammerstein Ballroom at the Manhattan Center.
As part of this season's event, the company will also honor longtime board members Marianne Mills and Harold Newman, whose work has included cochairing the Campaign for MCC Theater, the $45 million fundraising initiative to support building the Robert W. Wilson MCC Theater Space, MCC's new two-theater complex in Hell's Kitchen. The new venue will include the 245-seat Newman Mills Theater, named for Newman and Mills in recognition of their leadership support of the campaign.
In addition, MCC Theater will honor performer and playwright Ren Santiago with the 2018 MCC Theater Youth Company Alumni Award. Santiago was a member of the MCC Theater Youth Company from 2007-2011.
MCC Theater's annual Miscast gala finds Broadway's hottest stars performing songs from roles in which they would never be cast. An all-star lineup of performers will be announced at a later date.
