Photo Coverage: MCC Theater's Annual Gala 'Miscast'
MCC Theater 's annual gala, "Miscast", was held Monday, March 10, 2008 at The Hammerstein Ballroom (311 West 34th Street between 8th and 9th Avenues). Miscast 2008 brought together the best and brightest Broadway talent as they performed songs from roles in which they would never be cast.† Lynn Redgrave, currently in MCC's production of Grace, served as the evening's Honorary Chair.† Broadway's Phil Reno provided musical direction.
This year's event honored producers Jeffrey Richards and Jerry Frankel for their extraordinarily unique commitment to bringing provocative and daring works to mainstream New York theater audiences.† Richards and Frankel's prolific work is currently represented on Broadway by August: Osage County, Spring Awakening, The Homecoming and November.
The roster of performers for the evening included Brian d'Arcy James, Allison Janney, Jesse L. Martin, Kelli O'Hara, Cheyenne Jackson, Steven Pasquale, Patrick Wilson and Tony Award-winner Faith Prince, among many others.
All proceeds go directly to MCC's production, play development, education and outreach programs.† For more information please visit www.mcctheater.com
