A very special thank you to all who supported Miscast on Monday, March 4, 2013. Please check out exclusive footage and photos from the event below.
Jane Krakowski raps with the original cast of In the Heights, Cheyenne Jackson and Jeremy Jordan play Siamese Twins, Sierra Boggess takes on Britney Spears, and Jonathan Groff channels his inner Marilyn Monroe on this recap of Miscast 2013.
MCC Theater's annual Miscast gala is one of the most exciting and unique theater events in town. Broadway’s hottest stars perform songs from roles in which they would NEVER be cast. And the results are thrilling!
