It has been announced today that Raúl is among the list of performers scheduled to appear at this years Miscast on March 26 at the MCC Theater.
Miscast is a concert in which performers sing tunes they would likely never have the chance to take on in their proper context. It is not yet known what Raúl will sing.
Other performers at the concert include, Grammy and Tony Award nominee Sara Bareilles; Tony Award winners Jayne Houdyshell and James Monroe Iglehart; Tony Award nominees, Robert Fairchild, and Keala Settle; plus Hamilton star and reigning "Dancing With the Stars" champion Jordan Fisher, The Band's Visit star Katrina Lenk, Once on This Island star Alex Newell, and the voice of Moana, Auli'I Cravalho.
Last time Raúl took part in Miscast was in 2014 when he did 'A Boy Like That' from West Side Story - a duet he performed with with Lin Manuel Miranda. Apart from a few exaggerated facial expressions, they played it totally straight, and it went from amusing to powerful pretty fast. You can see a video of that performance below.
Performance-only tickets are currently on sale to MCC Theater Patron Program members, with a subscriber pre-sale beginning January 26. Tickets will go on sale to the general public on January 30.
