In addition to the live performance, MCC is partnering with The League of Live Stream Theater to broadcast Miscast23 April 10 at 7 PM ET. Following the premiere, the broadcast will be available to view on-demand until April 16.

Funds raised from Miscast23 supports its Youth Company and in-school partnerships that serve New York City public high school students, as well as MCC’s literary development work with emerging playwrights and it's Off-Broadway season.
