Miscast23 to Honor Vanessa Williams & Lianny Toval

Miscast23, the annual musical event where stars perform songs from roles in which they would not traditionally be cast, will take place at the Hammerstein Ballroom on April 3, 2023. The evening will honor Emmy, Grammy and Tony Award nominee Vanessa Williams and MCC Youth Company alumna Lianny Toval. “Vanessa’s career, on stage and screen, in music and even behind the scenes, is distinguished by a boldness that is undeniable and frankly, thrilling,” said co-Artistic Director Bernie Telsey in a statement. “We celebrate ambitious and daring risk takers at MCC Theater, and we’re really excited to celebrate Vanessa Williams at Miscast23 along with MCC Youth Company alumna Lianny Toval, whose accomplishments already have us eager to see where her own path takes her.” The performance lineup will be announced later.
