After having organized his weekly Cast Party every Monday evening at Birdland since 2003, showman Jim Caruso wasn’t about to let the temporary pandemic closure of the iconic New York nightclub put an end to its award-winning open mic night. Instead, with the technical expertise of producer Ruby Locknar, it went virtual, to bring the popular musical variety show to the homes of viewers around the world via the YouTube Cast Party Network. Musical guests of “Jim Caruso‘s Pajamas Cast Party “included Kristin chenoweth, Betty buckley, Jelani Remy, Marc Shaiman, Kathy najimy, Christine ebersole, Ariana DeBose, Clifton davis, Chita rivera, Michael Feinstein, Isaac mizrahi, Marie wilson, and Toni Tennille, who all served live musical performances from their homes.
