Photo Flash: HANDS ON A HARDBODY Cast and Creators Perform at Birdland

The cast and creators of the Tony nominated musical Hands On A Hardbody were cheered and celebrated when they performed at Birdland on Monday night during the weekly Jim Caruso's Cast Party open mic extravaganza. Co-writer Amanda Green (Tony-nominated for her Hardbody work, as well as Bring It On), Tony nominee Keala Settle, as well as Kathleen Monteleone, Jim Newman, and Jay Armstrong Johnson all sang from the show, guaranteeing some future record sales just from the few hundred folks enjoying Cast Party! (The original cast album will be released in June.)

Also in the house and/or on the stage were Liza Minnelli, Julie Garnye, Aaron Weinstein, Christine Lavin, Billy Rogan, Jenna Esposito and Mark Aaron James, among many others.

This coming Monday, Jim Caruso's Cast Party will be celebrating Tony Season with performances by the cast of The Mystery of Edwin Drood (including Tony nominee Stephanie J. Block, as well as Robert Creighton, Andy Karl and Jessie Mueller), A Christmas Story Tony-nominated composers Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, Lesli Margherita from Best Musical nominee Matilda, and Marva Hicks, from Motown: The Musical, which received four nominations.

Jim Caruso's Cast Party, celebrating ten years, is a wildly popular weekly soiree that brings a sprinkling of Broadway glitz and urbane wit to the legendary Birdland in New York City every Monday night. It's a cool cabaret night-out enlivened by a hilariously impromptu variety show. Showbiz superstars hit the stage alongside up-and-comers, serving up jaw-dropping music and general razzle-dazzle.
