A wildly popular happening that has brought Broadway glitz and urbane wit to the legendary Birdland in New York City every Monday night since 2003, Jim Caruso's Cast Party is a hilariously impromptu variety show and open mic where showbiz superstars and up-and-comers deliver jaw-dropping musical performances and razzle-dazzle. Think American Idol meets The Tonight Show. Imagine Martin Short and Liza Minnelli throwing a hip house party around the baby grand…and you were invited!
Legendary showman Jim Caruso guides the entire affair with razor-sharp humor and the unbridled enthusiasm of an uber-fan, but the real fun starts when the audience participates in the onstage festivities. Theatrical legends, jazzers, cabaret divas, starry-eyed tourists, and kids right off the bus take to the stage and entertain each other. If you have a voice, a dream and some sheet music, your Cast Party moment awaits.
