's Cast Party has been jokingly called "the Ellis Island of Cabaret," because at one time or another, all great talent seems to come through the historic Birdland doors. Monday night, September 10th, was certainly no exception, and even a little more star-filled than usual.
Long-time Cast Party stalwart, Liza Minnelli
showed up with concert superstar Michael Feinstein
to celebrate her return to "Arrested Development," and his new gig as lead conductor of the Pasadena Pops. At the next table, Feinstein's current singing partner, Marilyn Maye
caught up with friends before taking the stage so sing and swing.

Singer/composer Ann Hampton
Callaway held court on and off-stage, and created an impromptu musical masterpiece celebrating her anniversary living in New York City. Erich Berg
en arrived after rehearsing for the national tour of Anything Goes, in which he'll play the role of Billy Crocker. His performance of Larry O'Keefe's "Sensitive Song" had the packed house howling. Christina Bianco
did her spot-on impression of Celine Dion
singing "Cabaret," prompting a standing-o from Liza.
Regulars Natalie Douglas
, Marvin Parks and Jenna Esposito
entertained from their favorite stage. Even the singer Suede, who had sold out the Broadway at Birdland series with her concert earlier in the evening, stuck around to entertain the crowd with one more song.
