Few entertainers today are as accomplished or versatile as Ben Vereen. His legendary performances transcend time and have been woven into the fabric of this country’s artistic legacy. Most recently appearing in Time Out of Mind, Hot in Cleveland, and How I Met Your Mother, his first love and passion is and always will be the stage. On Broadway, Ben Vereen has starred in Wicked, Fosse, I’m Not
Rappaport, Hair, Jesus Christ Superstar, Pippin,
Grind, Jelly’s Last Jam, and A Christmas Carol. His
role in Pippin garnered him both the prestigious
Tony Award and the Drama Desk Award for Best
Actor in a Musical. Ben’s show is a unique blend of
artistry, combining tributes to Broadway and Frank
Sinatra with a very special tribute to Sammy Davis, Jr.
Featured hit songs include “Defying Gravity,” “Mr.
Bojangles,” “For Good” from Wicked, and “Life is
Just a Bowl of Cherries”. Ben has been headlining
performing arts centers and symphonies across the
country. His performances are filled with song and
dance, stories of his life, and a great deal of humor.
