Audrey Bernstein swings at Birdland's Cast Party!

As mentioned in this weeks Jim Caruso's Cast Party at Birdland Newsletter!  - At Cast Party, we were royally entertained by Tony winner Nikki M. James and Pam Shaw, who were celebrating their new movie, “Lucky Stiff,” which also stars Jason Alexander and our own Cheyenne Jackson.  For extra-added pleasure, Nikki even threw us back to her thrilling performance as Eponine in the revival of Les Miserables, and sang a perfect “On My Own!”  The wildly talented James family (aka “The Florida VonTrapps”), each performed for us, and we sure hope to see more of Jeremy, Shalisa, Jason, Julian, Ashley and PaigeSpencer Day got us all swingin’ with his jazzy performance, as did Audrey Bernstein. There were some swell standard-singers, some Broadway babies, and a few folks we just can’t categorize!  Around midnight, my pal Darren Criss and his gf Mia Swier bounded into Birdland just in time to catch mega-tappers John Manzari and Luke Hickey literally punishing the parquet!  Darren got into the spirit and sang a jazzed-up “Almost Like Being In Love,” making his “Glee” fans swoon.  Anyone who can shriek out the Hedwig score eight times a week, then croon a standard on his night off is OK by me!

Join the fun this Monday too, as Audrey performs for her father and family at Jim Caruso's Cast Party at Birdland - 7.13.2015
