Miranda Sings To Play Leicester Square Theatre June 3

Miranda Sings will be joined by Olivier Award-winner LeAnne Jones, Scarlett Strallen, Julie Atherton and Daniel Boys as well as Jon Lee, Ian 'H' Watkins, Noel Sullivan, Nikki Davis Jones, Adrian Hansel and Ben James Ellis.

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, London (Ambassador Theatre), and all over Australia.
