Block, Halston, Lavin, Mason, Mayes, Minnelli, et al. to Salute Jim Caruso
The event will be hosted by Carolyn Montgomery, Jay Rogers, and Julie Reyburn, and a portion of the proceeds will benefit Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS. Caruso will also receive the Sidney Myer Award for excellence in cabaret that evening.
Caruso has been a long-time contributor to TheaterMania, most recently with his new series of video features, "Jim Caruso is....Prying." He is the host of a popular Monday night cabaret series and Cast Party, both of which take place at Birdland. A multi-award-winning entertainer, Caruso has appeared at Carnegie Hall, The Town Hall, the Colony in Palm Beach, and the Russian Tea Room, and hosted such events as the annual Broadway on Broadway concert and the MAC Awards.
