Musicals Thread (Miscast Performances)

The prompt for this week is Miscast performances! What’s that? Bfth already asked you about miscasting last week? Never fear, this is a different kind of miscast: the good kind! If you’re not aware, every year the MCC Theater holds something called the Miscast Gala. This gala allows Broadway performers the chance to play a role that they would never be cast as. Well, for one song at least. This year’s gala was last week, so this seems like the perfect time to talk about some of our favorite Miscast performances. I’ll get us started by sharing this video of Lea Salonga performing “Why God Why” from Miss Saigon. Enjoy!

Alright, now it’s your turn. What are your favorite Miscast performances? Feel free to share similar videos that aren’t from the official Miscast Gala!
