On a hot stormy summer night, Adi and Rony decided to shoot a music video from the killer musical Chicago only to be immediately faced with a dilemma; Who would play which role? Neither of them would ever be cast in the roles of Roxie or Velma. A plus sized lead in a Broadway musical that’s not Hairspray?! Unheard of!
Full of gluten-free pizza and ideas, they decided to do their video anyway, only to have it blossom into a much more unique and intimate project.
Miss Cast Me is a fresh, comedic take on the struggles of plus size actresses being cast in the lead roles of musicals. The lighthearted cabaret includes Broadway review, pop music, and sharp Disney twists.
