Photo Flash: Victoria Shaw at Birdland & Cast Party

On Monday, February 25, the Broadway at Birdland series welcomed composer/performer Victoria Shaw and her celebrated showcase "Under The Covers With Victoria Shaw."

The round-robin for composers has become a recurring highlight, which features a wide variety of top-selling songwriters and musical acts from across the pop, rock and country worlds, offering intimate acoustic performances of huge hit songs - along with the little-known stories behind them. 

Taking part in Monday's show were Richie McDonald (the voice and most recognizable face for the platinum-selling supergroup Lonestar), Marcus Hummon (wrote "Bless The Broken Road," "Ready To Run," "Cowboy Take Me Away"), Jim Brickman ("Valentine"), Mark Hudson ("Livin' On The Edge"), and Julie Gold ("From A Distance"). 

Also performing some of the original material were Lari White (Ring of Fire), Meryl Dandridge (Tarzan) and Caroline Cutbirth.  The following Jim Caruso's Cast Party was packed with performances by Brent Barrett (Vegas Phantom), Paige Davis (Chicago & "Trading Spaces"), Douglas Wilson ("Trading Spaces"), who sang for an equally star-studded crowd that included Sunday in the Park With George stars Jenna Russell and Alexander Gemignani.

The Cast Party follows the critically-heralded Monday night concerts of Broadway at Birdland. Birdland is located at 315 West 44th Street, between 8th & 9th Aves. For information visit or by Telephone 212-581-3080
