Case in point: Norbert Leo Butz as Effie White. MCC Theater’s annual Miscast Gala came and MCC Theater’s annual Miscast Gala went, but at least one participant voiced   his dramatic concern about being asked to leave. Theater fans geek out yearly for the   Off Broadway company’s annual gala show which features New York stage all-stars bending age, gender, race, and everything else to perform songs and roles no self-respecting producer would ever allow them to do on a   stage Tuesday through Sunday. (Meanwhile, original Effie Jennifer Holliday was onstage the whole time, and her reactions are a bonus delight.)
EW has an exclusive look at “It’s All Over/And I Am Telling You I’m Not Going,” which is fairly   apt   considering the whole situation   is in fact over and will quite literally never happen again. Block, Kelli O’Hara, Jordan Fisher, and Jenn Colella. The two-time Tony winner (for Dirty Rotten Scoundrels and Catch Me If You Can) played the Dreamgirls diva in the evening’s penultimate   performance, drafting fellow singers Brandon Victor Dixon and Brian d’Arcy James as the other Dreams alongside Stephanie J. Other songs from this year’s Miscast, which you’ll likely see imminently on YouTube, include Carmen Cusack’s “You’ll Be Back,” Mandy Gonzalez’s “Waving Through a Window,” and Holliday’s finale,   “I Am What I Am” from La Cage.
