About MISCAST 2015

MISCAST is a cabaret-style event, showcasing Hong Kong's brightest musical theatre talents. In a very special twist, the performers will sing songs from roles specifically written for a different gender, race and age.

 

In breaking such labels and limitations, the evening will become a fresh and innovative take on beloved classics and contemporaries, and offer audiences a rare evening of pure liberated celebration of music. Some stunning women's voices will thrill audiences with their renditions of male classics like "Being Alive" (Company), whilst the male cast members will take on such diva staples as "And I'm Telling You" (Dreamgirls).

The Tony Award- and Drama Desk Award-winning play of 1996, Master Class, is the subject of ACT’s first playreading session of 2015. Written by Terrence McNally, with incidental music by Giuseppe Verdi, Giacomo Puccini, and Vincenzo Bellini, the play opened on Broadway in 1995, with both stars Zoe Caldwell and Audra McDonald winning Tony Awards.

 

 

"rich, vivid, satisfying theater…MASTER CLASS is an unembarrassed, involving meditation on Callas' life and the nature of her art. "

—NY Times

 

"MASTER CLASS…will be talked about for years to come whenever people point to theater experiences that genuinely deserve to be labeled by the overused word ‘great.’"

—The Hollywood Reporter

 

"It is Terrence McNally's total triumph in his MASTER CLASS”

—NY Post

" MASTER CLASS is mesmerizing theater."

—Star-Ledger

 

About the Play

Drama; Full Length

Roles: 3 men, 3 women

 

The opera diva Maria Callas, a glamorous, commanding, larger-than-life, caustic, and surprisingly drop-dead funny pedagogue is holding a voice master class at the Juilliard School. Alternately dismayed and impressed by the students who parade before her, she retreats into recollections about the glories of her own life and career. Included in her musings are her younger years as an ugly duckling, her fierce hatred of her rivals, the unforgiving press that savaged her early performances, her triumphs at La Scala, and her affair with Aristotle Onassis. It culminates in a monologue about sacrifice taken in the name of art.
