On Wednesday, August 3, host Jim Caruso and musical director Billy Stritch made their second trip to Chicago's Mayne Stage Theater with "Cast Party," the extreme open mic that has been running at Birdland in NYC for the past eight years, as well as on the road in Los Angeles, Orlando, Austin, and Pittsburgh.

Caruso and Stritch entertained a packed house with an impromptu show that included the cast of the Beauty and the Beast tour, jazz and blues singers, musical theater kids, improv artists, and cabaret divas! Another Chicago Cast Party is in the works, as are Las Vegas (August 24/25) and Cleveland (October 20) appearances.
