The hilarious impromptu evening has also been celebrating local talent in Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Chicago, Austin, and on the high seas. Now, Caruso and Stritch are brin ging the fun to Dallas, their old stomping grounds, for the first time! The buoyant, sharp and charming Jim Caruso guides the entire affair like a bubbly cruise director, musical genius Billy Stritch holds court at the ivories, and the audience is invited to participate in the festivities!  Performers wishing to take part in the musical fun should bring sheet music (in the correct key) for an upbeat song.
