Miscast20 Announces Date and Partial Casting for This Year's Online Gala
Joshua Henry, Judith Light, Adrienne Warren, and more will take part in the annual event, to be held online this year.
MCC Theater has announced that its annual gala, Miscast20, will take place on MCC Theater's YouTube Channel on Sunday, September 13, at 8pm ET. Miscast, MCC Theater's annual gala celebration, features stars of stage and screen singing songs from roles for which they would never be cast.
The partial roster of performers who will take part includes Beanie Feldstein, Heather Headley, Joshua Henry, Rob McClure, Nicolette Robinson, Phillipa Soo, and Adrienne Warren. The evening will also include appearances from Jocelyn Bioh, Raúl Esparza, and Judith Light. Will Van Dyke serves as musical supervisor. Additional participants will be announced in the coming weeks.
Miscast20 will feature a free raffle to win a table for 10 front and center at Miscast 21 and a toast with the performers onstage after the show. Raffle entry and bids can be placed here.
Funds raised from Miscast20 help MCC Theater produce exciting new work off-Broadway and support its Youth Company and in-school partnerships that serve New York City public high school students, as well as MCC's literary development work with emerging playwrights. Miscast20 will also support the Mental Health Coalition (MHC), who will receive 10 percent of funds raised during the broadcast. MHC is a new initiative focused on destigmatizing mental health experiences that was founded by social activist and fashion designer Kenneth Cole.
