“I had to learn to break the rules in order to be noticed,” says the Filipina performer who made her Broadway debut in the original production of Miss Saigon in 1999. “My audition pieces were practically cabaret acts. So, I put them all in a show.”

Full of intimate moments, show-stopping show tunes, unapologetic humor, and the scene-stealing characters for which Marcos is known, What I Did For… A Job is an all-new, made-for-streaming version of the cabaret she first premiered at Feinstein’s/54 Below in 2018.

Marcos has starred in some of Broadway’s most exciting musical revivals of the last twenty years, including Flower Drum Song with Lea Salonga, Sweet Charity with Christina Applegate, A Chorus Line with Mario Lopez, and most recently as Lily St. Regis in Annie opposite Jane Lynch’s Miss Hannigian. Her on-screen work includes Fox’s Rent: Live and comedic stints in Grace and Frankie, 30 Rock, and 2 Broke Girls.

Village of Irvington Mayor, Brian Cromwell Smith, is the presenting sponsor for this event. (To view Mayor Smith’s special welcoming message, click on the video below.)
