A Celebration of Cy Coleman
On Monday, April 27, Jim Caruso’s Cast Party at Birdland became the place to celebrate Andy Propst’s new book, You Fascinate Me So: The Life and Times of Cy Coleman. Some of Cy’s favorite singers, including Lillias White, Cady Huffman, Eric Comstock & Barbara Fasano, Steve Leeds, John Miller, Ilene Graff & Ben Lanzarone, and Billy Stritch came to sing his praises and songs accompanied by the Cast Party Symphony Orchestra, which included Mr. Stritch on piano, Steve Doyle on bass and Mark McLean on drums. As Cast Party is an extreme open mic night, each impromptu performance was completely unrehearsed, but endlessly “bewitching!”
Watch this video assembled by Jane Marino to see some of the activities from the Cy Coleman-themed evening!
