About this show

After four sold-out Birdland concerts, Miranda will be performing with some of Broadway's biggest stars, and give a lucky celebrity guest one of her much-discussed and sought-after voice lessons, fashion makeovers and dramatic readings of her own hate mail. You will not want to miss this lipstick-wearing, epileptic-eyebrowed, crooked-smiling beauty as she performs her magic at Birdland once again! Miranda Sings is an internet character created by California-based theatre student 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 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) and all over Australia.
