About Jim Caruso’s Cast Party:



“It’s a showbiz mecca, where the golden age of musical theater lives on.” – LOS ANGELES TIMES; "…a vital pulse point of the musical theater bloodstream: every week a star or a standard might be born." – TIME OUT NEW YORK; "Starrier than the Hayden Planetarium…a hot spot where Broadway and Hollywood tip, twirl and hit the mic. It's become the place to cruise, schmooze, sing and be seen." – PLAYBILL; "A Monday night institution." – CABARET CONFIDENTIAL; “Cast Party reminds me of a mix of Oscar and Tony-winning performers completely comfortable with the businessman from Oshkosh. Everybody has the same thing in common. They want to have a good time and be part of the excitement.” – MICHAEL FEINSTEIN; “It’s what you think the theatrical community is going to be like when you dream of going on Broadway.” – LIZA MINNELLI
