Photo Flash: Jim Caruso's CAST PARTY Visits LA!
Jim Caruso's Cast Party is the extreme open mic that has been running at Birdland in New York City every single Monday night for the past nine years. Recently, host Caruso and musical director Billy Stritch have taken the Party on the road, celebrating musical talent in Chicago, Las Vegas, Cleveland, Pittsburgh, Orlando, Austin, Delray Beach, and even on the high seas! Last week, the dynamic duo made a return to Los Angeles, where some highly entertaining locals sang and cavorted for a jam-packed house of friends and fans at The Coterie in the Renaissance Hotel.
Check out photos from the event below!
Taking part in the showbiz fun were writer/funny man Bruce Vilanch, cabaret diva Andrea Marcovicci, "American Idol" musical director Michael Orland, movie and Broadway boy Corbin Bleu, TV/theater/movie star Sarah Paulson, jazz crooner James Tormé, and dozens of brilliantly talented Hollywood types.
