For those of you unfamiliar with a MisCast concert, singers get to perform songs by characters that they would never be to play in real life.
For example, an all-male version of “The Cellblock Tango” from Chicago, or two women singing the princes’ duet, “Agony”, from Into The Woods. It is going to provide some fantastic, hilarious, and unusual performances for us to enjoy. It’s like Halloween and Christmas all wrapped up in one.
City Theater’s MisCast Concert is going to stream April 9 at 7:30PM through April 18 and we couldn’t be more excited. For theater fans, this is a not to be missed event!
This is the third virtual concert that City Theater has done since everything closed due to COVID-19 a year ago. Your support of these concerts has been instrumental in keeping City Theater alive during these trying times. The first was our Highlights Concert featuring performances from 10 years of City Theater musicals by the original performers. The second was our very popular Christmas concert, “Home For The Holidays.” For our third concert, we were looking for something to do that would allow our actors and our audience to have a little fun while we wait for theaters to reopen. (Hopefully very very soon!) The MisCast concert is perfect.
Our performers are having such a good time singing something that they love desperately but will never get to do on stage. These are once in a lifetime performances that range from ridiculously tongue-in-cheek to touchingly heartfelt. Join us for this oh-so fun event: “When the wrong casting is oh so right.”
