Jim Caruso is a man on a quest to introduce fantastic talents to the world at large.

JIM CARUSO'S PAJAMA CAST PARTY Stays Innovative With Lineup Of Diverse and Youthful Talent The 53rd episode of Jim Caruso's Pajama Cast Party will air on Monday, April 12 at 8 pm ET, and will feature live musical performances by one of Broadway's longest-running Elphabas from Wicked, Jackie Burns, two of Nashville's best voices Emily West and Chase McDaniel, singer/actor/teacher Jacob Daniel Cummings, and up-and-coming musical theater star D'Marreon Alexander.

After hosting his weekly Cast Party every Monday night at Birdland since 2003, showman Jim Caruso wasn't about to let the temporary pandemic shutdown of the iconic NYC nightclub put a halt to his award-winning open mic night. Instead, with the technical expertise of producer Ruby Locknar, he went virtual, to bring the popular musical variety show into the homes of viewers everywhere via the YouTube Cast Party Network. Musical guests of "Jim Caruso's Pajama Cast Party" have included Kristin Chenoweth, Betty Buckley, Christine Ebersole, Clifton Davis, Chita Rivera, Michael Feinstein, Pam Tillis, Isaac Mizrahi, Mary Wilson, Toni Tennille, and Ty Herndon, who have all served musical performances via live stream from their homes.

Jim Caruso, Ruby Locknar, Cast Party, and Pajama Cast Party were recently awarded five 2020 BroadwayWorld Awards for excellence in online and live entertainment.
