Luca Padovan as Eliza, Joshua Colley as Angelica, and Douglas Baldeo as Peggy.
MCC Theater’s annual Miscast Gala features Broadway stars performing musical numbers associated with roles they would never get cast in. This year’s event, which honored MCC alum Marisa Tomei, was held Monday night at the Hammerstein Ballroom at the Manhattan Center. Grease: Live‘s Aaron Tveit tackled the Rent duet “Take Me or Leave Me” with She Loves Me star Gavin Creel; The Color Purple‘s Cynthia Erivo slayed “A Piece of Sky” from Yentl; and Kimmy Schmidt breakout Tituss Burgess lured his boss Tina Fey onstage for a performance of “You’re Nothing Without Me” from City of Angels.
But one of the most memorable performances was the one that opened the show: School of Rock‘s Luca Padovan, Les Misérables‘ Joshua Colley, and Kinky Boots‘ Douglas Baldeo took on Hamilton’s “The Schuyler Sisters,” with an assist from On Your Feet star Ana Villafañe as Aaron Burr.
Check out the video below, and get excited about the inevitable first youth production of Hamilton.
