Jim Caruso’s Cast Party with Billy Stritch

Apr 12 | 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm

Dinner and cocktail seating and service begins one hour before showtime.

Open Mic, Variety Show

Showbiz superstars hit the stage alongside up-and-comers, serving up jaw-dropping music and general razzle-dazzle. Showman Jim Caruso guides the entire affair with razor-sharp humor and the unbridled enthusiasm of an uber-fan, and musical director Billy Stritch holds court at the ivories. But the real fun starts when the audience participates in the onstage festivities. Theater performers, jazzers, and cabaret divas storm the stage to entertain each other.
