About this show

You will not want to miss this lipstick-wearing, epileptic-eyebrowed, crooked-smiling beauty as she performs her magic at Birdland for one night only! Expect special guests, onstage voice lessons, fashion makeovers and dramatic readings of hate mail. Miranda Sings is an internet character created by Colleen Ballinger, and proliferated via YouTube. The character is a satire of increasingly common YouTube videos featuring mediocre or even bad singers who film themselves singing as a form of self promotion. Miranda is supposedly from Tacoma, Washington, sings comically off-key, and, when confronted by viewers who take the videos seriously, uses the catchphrase "Haters back off!" The characterization includes facial tics, unusually active eyebrows and a crooked smile. She also wears lipstick drawn beyond all natural borders and often dances stiffly to the music she is performing. Ms. Ballinger's character has enjoyed widespread popularity, particularly among musical theatre fans, and has recently appeared as Miranda Sings at live club and theater venues in New York (The Minskoff Theatre, Jim Caruso's Cast Party), Los Angeles and London (Ambassador Theatre). Special guests have included the casts of Mamma Mia, Billy Elliott, Bye Bye Birdie, Ann Hampton Callaway, Shoshana Bean, Daniel Reichard, Seth Rudetsky, and Barret Foa.
