Photo Flash: Miranda Sings, Joshua Ledet, & More Visit Birdland!

On Monday, May 28, YouTube sensation, chanteuse and high-end vocal coach Miranda Sings made her tenth sold-out concert appearance as part of the Broadway at Birdland series. Seth Rudetsky acted as musical director/pianist, jazz violinist Aaron Weinstein got some brush-up suggestions from 'violimnist' Miranda, and Adam Pascal, currently starring on Broadway in Memphis, subjected himself to the diva's sensitive and pitch-perfect critiques. As always, the show was filled with improvisation, a few hit songs, magic tricks, and dramatic readings of the lady's own hate mail. The wacked-out superstar (in reality, California native Colleen Ballinger) continues to perform her one-woman show in sold-out nightclubs and theaters in New York, London, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Miami, Chicago, Dublin, and Sydney.

The following Cast Party, hosted by Jim Caruso, was an eclectic and starry open mic, with impromptu performances by "American Idol" finalist Joshua Ledet (accompanied by "A.I" Musical Director Michael Orland), nightclub legend Marilyn Maye, Merman-file/singer/actress KLea Blackhurst, R&B tenor William Blake, cabaret singer Jenna Esposito, comedian Greer Barnes, VocaPeople's Chris Dilley, actress/singer Andrea Prestinario, and singer Matt Falber, among many others. The singers were all brilliantly accompanied by the Cast Party Symphony Orchestra (Tedd Firth, Steve Doyle and Daniel Glass) for an audience that included Manhattan regulars, tourists from The Netherlands and Australia, and several Naval Officers from the USS WASP!
