On April 4th, MCC Theater hosted the 2016 Miscast gala, featuring numerous Broadway stars performing songs from roles in which they would never be cast. This year, Lea Salonga, Tina Fey, Tituss Burgess, and many others were in on hand to both woo and entertain those lucky enough to attend.
As previously announced, Aaron Tveit was also part of this year’s lineup, which marked his third Miscast appearance to date. This time, he performed a heart-wrenching rendition of “As Long As He Needs Me” from Oliver!; you can watch a professionally shot video of it on MCC Theater’s YouTube. His second song of the night – RENT‘s “Take Me Or Leave Me” – was a show-stopping duet with Gavin Creel. Paul Wontorek of Broadway.com reported that video of the performance had half a million views just one day after it was uploaded! Check it out below:
