Some of Broadway's brightest stars lit up the Hammerstein Ballroom stage April 3 for MCC Theater's annual Miscast concert. Each year Miscast proves to be one of the industry's favorite events, featuring Broadway stars performing songs from roles in which they might not be traditionally cast.

This year, Miscast23 honored Emmy, Grammy, and Tony nominee Vanessa Williams and MCC Youth Company alum Lianny Toval.

Check out the set list from the 2023 concert:

  • "The Wizard and I" from Wicked, performed by Ben Platt
  • "Corner of the Sky" from Pippin, performed by Lorna Courtney
  • "I Could Have Danced All Night/Wouldn't It Be Loverly" from My Fair Lady, performed by Joy Woods (who filled in for Jordan Donica, who could not attend)
